Dr. Mojgan Jadidi is an inspired faculty member at Lassonde school of Engineering, Geomatics engineering program who embraces the power of location turn it to knowledge discovery for better and informed decision making in the context of smart buildings, infrastructures and cities. She received her PhD in Geomatics from Université Laval in 2014 working on development of Fuzzy Spatial Datacube for Risk Assessment. She has MSc in Earthquake and Seismology Engineering from Rose School, Italy and Université Joseph Fourier, France and BSc in Civil-Survey Engineering from Iranian University of Science and Technology. Her research has been funded by multiple grants from NSERC, Mitacs, COMREN and internal York University funds. She is currently associate Director of ESRI Center of Excellence at York University. Before joining Lassonde School of Engineering, she was a postdoctoral researcher at GeoICT Lab working on BIM-GIS data integration and dynamic visualization of urban data using recent 3D web services from September 2014 to June 2016 (a project funded by CIVDDD and BRAIN Alliance).

Dr. Jadidi won a number of international awards and scholarships for post doctorate, graduate studies, such as the NSERC in 2016, ESRI Students Award in 2011 and Erasmus Mundus Master Scholarship from the European Commission in 2006. She is active member of ISPRS Commission IV/W7 GeoData Management since 2016.
