Ms Saeedeh Gharib Choobary


Saeedeh Gharib Choobary is a PhD student in the School of the Environment at the Flinders University of South Australia. Her PhD research focuses on optimization of natural and managed cooling effects in the Adelaide metropolitan areas. The main focus of this project is to optimize Adelaide Parkland (APL) irrigation in order to reduce summer heat in the Adelaide metropolitan area and to improve the APL cooling potential. Moreover, sea breeze provides a good cooling resource in Adelaide summer months. However, it is not known how frequent, and to what extent this sea breeze cooling effect occurs in the Adelaide metropolitan area, how this cooling effect varies with weather systems, and how this will change with future climate. The sea breeze related issues are the second focus of the project.

Saeedeh graduated with a Master in Petroleum Engineering from International University of Imam Khomeini, Iran, in 2011. She also has a Bachelor of Petroleum Engineering from Abadan Institute of Technology (AIT), Iran. She has four years of experience as a senior petroleum engineer in National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC). The dramatic environmental issues such as global warming resulting from oil and gas industry activities inspired her to focus her research on Environmental Sciences.
