Amirmasoud Hamedi, PhD, PE, CMT Project Manager and Postdoctoral Fellow at Froehling & Robertson Inc., and Florida International University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Engineers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in civil engineering.
Delving into engineering due to the influence of his mother, who encouraged him to pursue a career in the field, Dr. Hamedi decided to study water resources management because of the lack of fresh water in Iran while he was growing up. Earning a Bachelor of Science in 2007 and a Master of Science in civil engineering in 2010 from the Azad University of Tehran, he worked for several corporations while studying to obtain his doctorate. Commencing his career as a researcher with the Water Research Institute at the Hydraulic Laboratory from 2010 to 2011.
Dr. Hamedi followed these experiences as a superintendent at the Aliabad Industrial Sewage Treatment Plant at the Mehravan Zist Consulting Engineering Company, a lecturer at Azad University, a hydraulic structure engineer at the Tavanab Consulting Engineering Company, and director of the educational division and head of department of Architecture at Molana Institute of Higher Education. Dr. Hamedi relocated to the United States soon thereafter, working as a graduate assistant at Florida International University from 2014 to 2016, as well as a visiting researcher at the Center for Research in Water Resources at the University of Texas at Austin in 2016.
