Professional Experience
Dr. Vahid Rahmani received his bachelor’s and master's degrees in civil and environmental engineering from Amir-Kabir University of Technology and Shiraz University, respectively. He then earned his doctorate degree in biological and agricultural engineering with a hydrology focus from Kansas State University. He spent his postdoc experience at the Kansas Biological Survey working on reservoir science. Dr. Rahmani joined the Kansas State University in 2016. He is an active member of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE), American Geophysical Union (AGU), American Meteorological Society (AMS), and Environmental & Water Resources Institute (EWRI).

Dr. Rahmani’s research interests include climate change and variability impacts on water resources management and nonstationary extreme weather events. Currently, his group is working on spatiotemporal patterns of drought, flooding, heatwave, and other climate extremes using statistical techniques and remote sensing. His research goal is to promote water supply protection for agricultural and domestic use and improve sustainable management of the available water in streams and reservoirs for food and energy needs. Please contact Dr. Rahmani for joining or collaborating opportunities.

Academic Highlights
Dr. Rahmani collaborates with colleagues with diverse interests and backgrounds to create innovative ideas to address complex water and climate related questions. With his interdisciplinary interests, he is always exploring new techniques and strategies to help in providing water when and where we need it. Dr. Rahmani is an active reviewer for peer-reviewed journals in the fields of hydroclimatology and impacts of climate change such as the Weather, Climate, and Society, Atmospheric Research, Hydrological Processes, and Stochastic Environmental Research and Risk Assessment.
