Majidzadeh’s expertise is in water quality, hydrology, and data analysis. He earned a doctorate in Biogeochemistry from Auburn University’s School of Forestry in 2016. His doctoral work dealt with effects of urbanization on soil and water quality.
During postdoctoral studies at Clemson University, his research focused on how extreme rainfall events affect watersheds with various land use and on the impacts of hurricanes and wildfires on source and drinking water quality.
In his position at S.C. Sea Grant Consortium, Majidzadeh will work closely with state natural resource managers, community groups, scientists, universities, and decision-makers to help sustain coastal environmental quality.
