Yasaman Rafighdoust

Research Scholar
The Department of Geology welcomes Yasaman (Jasmin) Rafighdoust, a visiting Ph.D. student from Ferdowsi University, Mashhad, Iran. Jasmin completed her M.Sc. in Geology (Sedimentology) from Tehran, Iran, and she is presently focusing on environmental geology and sedimentology for her Ph.D. research.  Specifically, her research lies in the determination of water quality and assessment of transport and fate of contaminant in rivers. She is seeking to identify the effects of hydrocarbon springs in concentration of organic contaminates and heavy metals in soil and water and also the effect of sediments in the absorption process of these heavy metals.
