Dr. Yasir MohieldeenScientist | Measurement Science and Analytics
Yasir Mohieldeen is a GIS and EO specialist who works on solar energy and water resource management problems and on the monitoring and regulation of domestic and industrial water services, and on natural resources evaluation. He is currently leading the solar atlas and solar resource assessment project using satellite data and in-situ measurements. The project uses cutting-edge space borne MeteoSat images. Yasir works also on modeling roof-tops potentials for solar Photovoltaic (PV) production. He uses GIS multi-criteria analysis to identify optimum locations for large scale PV solar plants.
- PhD in Environment and Water. University of London. 2007
- MPhil in Environment and Water: King’s College – University of London, UK.2003
- MA in Environment and Development. School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London- UK. 2000

Dr. Mohieldeen joined QEERI In 2011, prior to QEERI, he worked in the National Remote Sensing Centre of Sudan and contributed to many projects using Geographical Information System (GIS), EO and GPS to collect and analyze spatial data. In 1994 Yasir joined a British company, Huntings Technical Services, in Khartoum and worked on a project analyzing drought and drought frequency in Sudan using GIS and EO. During this time he contributed to undergraduate and post graduate education in GIS and EO. In 2005 he was appointed to a position of Remote Sensing Engineer at the Surrey University’s Space Centre, where he gained valuable experience in capturing and distributing EO data for projects world-wide. In 2007 he joined Biwater, a British company specialized in water services and water treatment, he provided GIS and management services in Khartoum and from 2009 in Amman. In 2011 Yasir worked as a GIS Specialist, on a project using GIS techniques to record systems at risk in water networks in London and other UK cities for the 2012 Olympic Games.
