Mohammad Bagherbandi


Research subject: Land surveying
Research domain: Geospatial Information Science

He received B.Sc. in Land Surveying Engineering (2000), and then the M.Sc. degree in Geodesy from K.N.Toosi University,Tehran, Iran in 2002, the Ph.D. degree from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden, in 2011. He promoted to Docent in Geodesy (2013). He is working as Professor at University of Gävle and Senior Researcher at KTH.
