MSc Student


Ali  Reza Shavaran

I joined the Earth Sciences (Water) program in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Waterloo and ReSEC Lab at Wilfrid Laurier University in September 2021. My current thesis is a part of the GWF Urban project, and it focuses on studying the retrieval algorithm of Cladophora and Chl-a concentration using remote sensing data to calibrate the developed algal growth model of western Lake Ontario.

Although I hold an MSc in Environmental Engineering from the University of Science and Technology (IUST), Tehran, I decided to pursue the second MSc due to the collaborative nature of the project (between Ecohydrology Lab and ReSEC Lab), the reputation of the supervisors and the practicality of the syllabi.
