Shahab Moghadas main scientific interest is runoff generation particularly in urban areas with seasonal variation and climate change perspective. The focus of his research has been on runoff generation in cold regions due to snowmelt and rain-snowmelt co-occurrence during thawing period while cold period is characterized by snow accumulation and ground frost development. Shahab’s research interest, during his PhD study, is focused on cold climate runoff generation, performance assessment and development of potential urban flooding controls (e.g. bioretention and green roofs) for today and future climate scenarios to propose management strategies to improve winter/spring stormwater handling. This comprised of snowmelt modelling with focus on procedure development for urban snowmelt simulation; laboratory scale study of frozen ground impact on runoff generation and flood controls (i.e. bioretention) and finally winter/spring runoff modelling for future climate, some part of which is presented in his licentiate thesis at LTU in 2014. Shahab took his master in Water Resource Engineering from Lund University, Sweden.
