Shima Azimi


Scholarship holder


Shima Azimi was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1986. She received a M.S. degree in Civil Engineering, water resources management from Khaje Nasir University of Technology (Tehran, Iran) in 2013. As a visitor, she carried out a research activity on assimilating remotely sensed soil moisture data into a semi- distributed hydrological model with the Research Institute of Geo-Hydrological Protection (IRPI) of the National Research Council (CNR) of Perugia (Italy) in 2018.

In May 2019 she received a Scholarship to carry out research at CNR-IRPI of Perugia (Italy) under the topic “Flood risk analysis and mitigation based on ground and satellite hydrometeorological observations that initialize advanced hydrologic and hydraulic modeling.”
