Dr. Khaled Osati, born in 1984 in Ahmadabad Panjeh village (Dehgolan/Kurdistan Province/Iran), received his B.Sc. degree in Range & Watershed Management from University of Kurdistan in 2006. He also got his M.Sc. and PhD degrees in Watershed management from University of Tehran under supervisions of Prof. Mohammad Mahdavi and Dr. Ali Salajegheh in 2008 and 2013, respectively. During his PhD, he attended a 6-months period, worked as a visiting researcher in Stable Isotope Laboratory of BGR (Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources), Hanover, Germany, under supervision of Dr. Paul Koeniger, in 2012. During his M.Sc. thesis, his research areas focus on "unit hydrograph derivation from complex storms". He has analysed rainfall -  run off data from four small watersheds at Central Alborz to test the accuracy of Collin's, Least Squares and Linear Programming methods for UH derivation and runoff hydrograph reconstruction. Since 2008, his research activities focus has been on groundwater - surface water interaction in karst areas (the Upper Karkheh River Basin). Besides using stable isotope for groundwater - surface water interaction studying, he has worked on temporal trend of water quality and quantity in the mentioned research areas. Since 2010, he also have worked at different hydrological projects for Consulting Engineering companies such as Saz Ab Shafagh Co. and Homayoon Moshaver Co.. Now he is working as Assistant Professor in the Department of Range and Watershed Management, Faculty of Natural Resources, University of Kurdistan (UOK), Sanandaj, Iran. His research interests and activities focus on:

        •  Stable Isotope in Hydrology and Water Resources Management

        •  Rainfall – Runoff Modeling

        •  HydroGIS

        • Water Quality

        •  Trend Analysis and Statistical Methods in Hydrology & Water Resources Management

        •  Geostatistics

        •  Rainfall Simulator studies
