Dr. Hossein Aghababaei has held the position of Assistant Professor at the Faculty of ITC, University of Twente. His research is focused on synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data analysis, with a particular specialization in Polarimetric SAR (#PolSAR) and SAR tomography (#TomoSAR). His research interests are closely aligned with applications pertaining to the forestry sector, specifically the investigation of forest structures (#3D forest) through the utilization of SAR tomography.
