Babak obtained his PhD from University of Twente in the Netherlands and was also, until recently, Assistant Professor of Geo-Informatics at IAU University in Teheran in Iran. He was also appointed post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Évora in Portugal for 8 months, then held positions of research associate at the Imperial College London Grand Challenges in Ecosystems and Environment initiative and the University of Copenhagen’s Centre for Macroecology Evolution and Climate to work jointly with Miguel Araújo. His research interests revolve around spatio-temporal statistics, environmental modelling, and the interface between geo-informatics and macroecology. In particular, he is interested in developing new methods for environmental niche modelling under climate change and land use change scenarios to improve their ability for understanding of ecological processes associated with the patterns in species distributions as well as to deal with the challenges in the methods. He has a keen interest to continuing research on understanding and quantifying uncertainties in ensembles of environmental niche models while focusing on the application of geo-informatics.
