Masoud Arshadi earned his BS in civil engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 2008. He received his PhD from University of Colorado Boulder in 2015, where he worked with Professor Harihar Rajaram, with a focus on in-situ chemical oxidation in fractured rocks. Thereafter, he served as a postdoctoral scholar at Tufts University working with Professor Linda Abriola. His research focuses broadly on mathematical modeling of environmental fate and transport of contaminants in porous and fractured media, with emphasis on contaminant source zone characterization and in-situ chemical and bio remediation. He is primarily interested in developing modeling tools and frameworks that can be used for design of remediation schemes, assessment of remediation effectiveness, and prediction of contaminant persistence. In 2020, he was named a research assistant professor within the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
