About me :

Fardad Maghsoudi Moud was born 5 June 1991 in ZahedanIran. He started his primary educations in Tokyo, Japan and passed his high school at Kerman, Iran and received Mathematics and Physics Diploma (2009). Bachelor of Science (BS.c) in Mining Engineering (Mineral Exploration Branch) in Mining Engineering Department, Engineering Faculty of Shahid Bahonar University of Kerman (UK), and also Master of Science  (MS.c) in Mining Engineering (Mineral Exploration Branch) at Mining Engineering Faculty, Isfahan University of Technology (IUT) was his past academic educations. Currently, he is a Ph.D. student at the faculty of ITC Geo-information Science and Earth Observation, University of Twente, The Netherlands. 

He is enthusiastic in applications of remote sensing (RS) and geographic information system (GIS) in geoscientific topics. Digital image processing for detecting mineralization, working with drones for 3D modeling and agricultural investigations, and Integration of diverse exploratory layers (remote sensing, geology, tectonics, geochemistry, and geophysics)  for mineral potential mapping are other fonds of him.
