I am Fatemeh Karandish, an associate professor in Water Engineering Department, University of Zabol, Zabol, Iran. I started WF projects for Iran since 2013, and was fortunate to work with Prof. Arjn. Y. Hoekstra, in University of TWENTE, Enschede, the Netherlands during two research stay in 2015 and 2017. You may find our joint papers in the following selected publication. We also are continuing these projects, the main goal of which is to provide applicable solutions for alleviating blue water scarcity in Iran, while keeping food security and environmental sustainability. I welcome researchers who are interested in having joint projects on WF assessment for Iran. In addition, my full research interest and published papers may be found in my own page on ResearchGate.
