Abbas Hooshmand finished his PhD at the University of Washington in Civil and Environmental Engineering department. He was born in Tehran, Iran and graduated from Sharif University of Technology's Mechanical Engineering program in 2008. In 2009, he began his graduate work at the University of Washington. He worked with Alex Horner-Devine on sediment transport due to surface waves in continental shelves and conducted research in a wave flume in Harris Hydraulics Lab. He is now a research associate at Western Washington University where he works on a USGS project on numerical modeling of waves and sea level rise using Delft3D, SWAN and XBeach. When not at work he enjoys playing squash, running around Bellingham, hiking and playing setar. and cooking.
