About me :

Welcome to my academic website!

My name is Saeid Esmaeiloghli. My field of study is the mineral exploration engineering. I’m currently a PhD student at the Isfahan University of Technology (IUT) since 2014.

I was born on September 5, 1986 in the city of Meshkin Shahr, located in the Ardabil province, northwest of IRAN. Meshkin Shahr is one of the most ancient city in Iran. It is the nearest city to the Sabalan high mountain.

I've studied and graduated from the Sahand University of Technology (SUT), both the bachelor of science and master of science degrees. Sahand University of Technology (Persian: Dāneshgāh-e San'ati-ye Sahand‎) is a leading engineering university in Iran. Located in the northwest of Iran, 20 km southwest of Tabriz in Sahand satellite city, offering both undergraduate and postgraduate studies. It is named after the nearby mountain of Sahand. In two years of M.Sc., my fields of interest were mainly concentrated on two topics: "Geostatistics and Geochemical Exploration". My M.Sc. seminar was entitled: "Geostatistical monitoring of mineral deposits, with focus on indicator kriging (IK)", while the M.Sc. thesis was entitled: “Mineralization potential assessment of primary geochemical halos, using exploratory boreholes of Masjed-Daghi porphyry copper deposit”. My M.Sc. thesis supervisor at the SUT was Dr. Mohammad Jafar Mohammadzadeh, who is Associate Professor at mining engineering department.

In 2014, I got accepted at the doctoral level, at Isfahan University of Technology (IUT) and now I’m a Ph.D. student in mining engineering-mineral exploration here. Isfahan University of Technology (Persian: Dāneshgāh-e San'ati-ye Esfahān) is one of the most prestigious engineering universities in Iran. It is located 15 Kilometers north west of Isfahan and is one of the major universities and research poles in Iran in the fields of science, engineering and agriculture. My Professor and my thesis supervisor at the IUT is Dr. Seyyed Hassan Tabatabaee, who is Associate Professor at mining engineering faculty.

The university was designed and planned based on models of MIT and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. IUT is ranked among top 351-400 universities of world for the 2014-2015 educational year as per Times Higher Education (THE) ranking. It is the second Iranian university in this view after Sharif University of Technology which is ranked among top 300-350 universities. In addition, the university is ranked among top 100 world's universities under 50 years old (100 Under 50) (92nd) in 2014 by Times Higher Education (THE).
