Milad Asgarimehr (31) studied geodesy in Iran and has been working on his doctoral dissertation since early 2017 as part of a joint project by TU Berlin and GFZ Potsdam. He studies signals of global GPS navigation satellite systems in earth and extreme weather monitoring which are reflected on the surface of the sea. Milad Asgarimehr intends to analyse distortions of these signals caused by wind and rainfall in order to optimise the GPS used for measuring wind and rain. During his doctorate, Asgarimehr has written four publications in internationally renowned journals as the first author, as well as two other publications as the co-author. Furthermore, he has already submitted his master’s thesis to two international publications. He is also committed to promoting the topic among the public with popular science publications. He impressed the jury with his clear vision for his future scientific career and for using the prize money for a research visit at the University of Michigan.
