Hossein Hashemi is assistant professor (Biträdande Universitetslektor) at the Department of Water Resources Engineering and Center for Middle Eastern Studies. He received his Ph.D. in Water Resources Engineering, with emphasis on water management in arid areas, in 2014. His Ph.D. thesis was based on a joint project between the Faculty of Engineering (LTH) and the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Lund University, Sweden. His Ph.D. research was focused on groundwater management, groundwater artificial recharge, and water harvesting techniques as the main and efficient approach to increase the availability of water supply and reach sustainable water resources use in Middle Eastern countries. Before joining Lund University, he served as a research engineer at the Center for Agriculture and Natural Resources in Iran for several years.

He also served as postdoctoral scholar at the Center for Groundwater Evaluation and Management (GEM), Department of Geophysics at Stanford University, USA (2015-2017). At Stanford, he focused on the application of remote sensing data in the field of hydrology and groundwater hydrology i.e. precipitation, temperature, groundwater, and subsidence.

His research interests primarily lie in the area of remote sensing, climate change, and surface water and groundwater management in arid areas.
