Alireza Malehmir obtained his BSc (2000) and MSc (2002) degrees in Mining Engineering-Exploration from Polytechnic of Tehran-Iran and PhD degree (2007) in Geophysics from Uppsala University-Sweden. After about one year of post-doctoral experience (2008) at the Geological Survey of Canada-Ottawa working on 3D seismic imaging of deep-seated massive sulphide deposits, he returned back to Uppsala as an assistant professor first and later (2012) as a senior lecturer in reflection seismology. Alireza was promoted to a professor of applied geophysics in 2016. His research interests include 2D/3D geophysical modeling using integration of reflection seismic with potential field data and available geologic information, 2D/3D-3C seismic imaging in hard rock and urban environments, and instrumentations for near-surface applications. He has been leading or involved in several research-industry projects in countries such as Sweden, Finland, Canada, Iran, South Africa, Spain, Zambia and Norway. He is the scientific coordinator of the H2020 funded Smart Exploration where 27 partners, including EAGE, from 9 EU countries are participating. He is an active member of EAGE, SEG, and EGU, serves on the editorial boards of Geophysical Prospecting, Nature Scientific Reports and Journal of Applied Geophysics and has acted as a guest editor/associate editor for several journals. Alireza is currently vice-chair of the Near Surface Geoscience Division of EAGE.
Alireza has organized several technical workshops and sessions, been in the past three technical committees of NSG-EAGE conferences and has given over 20 keynote and invited talks at various major international events.
