Mohammad Valipour, Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the Department of Engineering and Engineering Technology at the Metropolitan State University of Denver. His research and expertise include sustainable systems engineering, artificial intelligence, satellite remote sensing, climate change, and hydroinformatics. Valipour currently teaches Life Cycle and Systems Engineering, Statics, and Fluid Mechanics.

Prior to joining MSU Denver, he worked as an assistant professor at Kentucky State University, developing a nationally recognized sustainable program for small and minority communities using robots and robotics, unmanned aerial vehicles/drones, artificial intelligence, mobile power units, apps, fluid and electrical power systems, irrigation and water management, remote sensing, and human and machinery risk management.

Valipour won the prestigious Alexander von Humboldt award for his proposal titled “Global land surface air temperature, solar radiation, and precipitation in estimated by satellite remote sensing, climate reanalysis, and land surface models.” Valipour was selected as the best associate editor of Simulation and an outstanding reviewer of GIScience and Remote Sensing. He was a conference chair for the Mediterranean Geosciences Union, annual meeting, and an invited speaker at the University of Minnesota. He is also a member of the American Geophysical Union and American Meteorological Society.

He is an associate editor of Urban Climate, Stochastic Environmental Research and Risk Assessment, Earth Science Informatics, Canadian Journal of Soil Science, Acta Geophysica, and Simulation.

Valipour has held postdoctoral fellowships at Auburn University, University of Florida, University of Hawaii, and Leibniz University Hannover.
