Dr. Nazari is an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Rowan University. His primary research interests are: application of remote sensing in water resources and environment, Coastal resiliency, hydrodynamic modeling, storm water management and impact assessment of extreme weather events on built environment. He has worked on New York and New Jersey Resiliency planning has been a pioneer in identification of the high risk areas and prediction of the possible damages and cost analysis under various extreme climatic scenarios. He has received over $3,000,000 in funding from federal, state and industry for his research. Dr. Nazari's research has been supported by NSF, USDA, FEMA, NJDCA, NJDEP, NY/NJ DOT, and American Water. Dr. Nazari's work has been featured on TV and major Newspapers including, PIX11 news, NJTV, US Guardian, Philadelphia Inquirer, New Jersey Business and Press of Atlantic City to name a few.
