Dr. Moradkhani holds BS (UT, 1991), MS (IUST, 1994), and PhD (UCI, 2005), all first rank in civil and environmental engineering specializing in hydrology, hydraulics and water resources systems. He has been on the faculty of the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Portland State University (PSU) since September 2006.

In 2014, Dr. Moradkhani was elected as a fellow of American Society of Civil Engineering (F.ASCE). Also, in 2011, he earned the distinction of Diplomate, Water Resources Engineer (D.WRE) recognized and designated by the American Academy of Water Resources Engineers (AAWRE) Board of Trustees. He is currently sustainability fellow at the Institute of Sustainable Solutions at PSU. He is on the editorial board of journal of hydrology, section lead editor of Springer handbook of hydrometerological ensemble forecasting, member of the editorial board of AGU Water Resources Research, ASCE journal of Hydrologic Engineering and also the international Editorial Advisory Board of Journal of Science and Technology. Recently he served as the guest editor of Journal of Hydrology for a special issue of data assimilation and ensemble forecasting.  He served as the chair of the Risk and Uncertainty in Water Resources Systems committee at the Environmental and Water Resources Institute (EWRI). He was also the watershed council board member of the EWRI for 3 years. He is a member of Surface Water Hydrology and Remote Sensing Committees of the AGU Hydrology Section.
