Sarah is a researcher/analyst in Geomatics and Remote Sensing. Her research interest is the use of Earth observation data and geostatistics to describe the interaction between weather, land, and water.
She has a BSc. in Geodesy & Geomatics - Surveying Engineering, and a MSc. in Remote Sensing (K.N. Toosi University of Technology, Iran). During her Master’s studies, she investigated the use of spatial unmixing for image fusion. She was involved in two national projects in Iran; a rice production monitoring system, and an irrigation advisory system. She moved to the Netherlands as a highly skilled migrant and did her Ph.D. in geostatistics and copulas, a relatively new area for integrating of information (Departments of Earth observation science, and Water resource science, the faculty of ITC, University of Twente).
She has some experience in lecturing, supervising students and preparing education material for data assimilation and copulas. She has particular skills in programming, system analysis, geo/statistical methods, fusion techniques, image/data processing and management, optimization and simulation methods.
