Yaser Peiro was born in Behbahan, Iran, in 1989. He received his M.S. degree in Civil Engineering-Geotechnical Engineering  from Iran University of Science and Technology ,Tehran, Iran in 2014.  From May to November 2022 he carried out a research visit at the Research Institute of Geo-Hydrological Protection (IRPI) of the National Research Council (CNR) of Perugia (Italy) where he developed his research on the prediction of landslides using soil moisture data.

In a joint agreement with the CNR-IRPI, Yaser has been a Ph.D. candidate since November 2022 for the International Doctorate in Science Applied to Wellness and Sustainability at the University of Ecampus (Italy). He is currently working on a thesis entitled “Monitoring and Detecting Landslides Using Satellite Remotely Sensed Data”.
