Majid Sadeghi has a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from University of California, Santa Barbara (1985), Master of Science in Environmental Engineering (1987) and Engineer Degree in Civil Engineering from University of Southern California (1989). In addition he has Doctor of Philosophy degree in Geography from University of California, Santa Barbara (2015). I have been a Research Associate at UCSB Geography Department since June 2015 to Present. Also I am an Environmental Engineer at LA Sanitation & Environment - City of Los Angeles since June 2002 to Present. In addition, I am a Lecture at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona (Cal Poly Pomona) from January 2019 to Present.
Majid Sadeghi has over 30 years of civil and environmental engineering and consulting experience, including hazardous waste management, pollution prevention assessments, design of industrial wastewater pretreatment facilities & gas collection/treatment systems. He has been responsible for civil and environmental engineering tasks for many projects. In addition, he has been working in the Green Stormwater Infrastructure and capture projects, reduce pollutants and augment water supply projects. Knowledgeable in water quality, wastewater, and hazardous waste regulations and have represented industries in regulatory negotiations, the preparation of various civil and environmental engineering designs, compliance reports, as well as local, state, and federal permits. Designs of building with plans and civil engineering designs, project for concrete and asphalt in construction. Assisted in development of stormwater pollution prevention plans, Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) reports. 37 reviewed journal publications, 3 U.S. patents, 1 Canadian patent, 1 International patent, and 22 presentations at international conferences.
I am working of the development and testing a new mixed integer nonlinear programming (MINP) method for optimally selecting and sizing stormwater control measures (SCMs) in urban regions. The MINP method considers: the cost of SCM installation, operation, and maintenance; budgetary constraints on stormwater control expenditures; the capacity of SCMs to capture and retain stormwater on site based on hydrologic and hydraulic characteristics; the pollutant removal efficiency of SCMs, in selecting SCMs to meet stormwater management criteria at minimum cost.
