This website offers information on my academic and professional career. It also provides access to some of my publications, and to projects I am or have been involved in. The following is the tag-cloud of the title of my publications and it reflects my past / current interests.
Prof. Dr. GholamHossein Davarynejad,
Professor of Horticultural Science,
Department of Horticulture,
Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran.
My Short Biography:
I was born in Mashhad (Persian: مشهد), the capital city of Razavi Khorasan - an ancient province of Iran and the birthplace of great poets Ferdowsi (935-1020 AD), Omar Khayyam (1048-1123 AD), and Akhavan Sales (1928-1990 AD).
From an early age, I knew I loved three things: weightlifting, wrestling and science. In the meantime, I've kept these while exploring a number of others. My work and studies have taken me to Sari, Mashhad, and Budapest.
I received my PhD in Horticulture from Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest, Hungary in 1992. Currently I am a Professor at the Department of Horticulture at the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad where I have been a faculty member since 1987. I’m the Founder of the Department of Horticulture, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad and served as its director for twelve years. Also I'm the founder of Journal of Horticultural Science where I served as the Editor-in-chief for 12 years. I currently serve as the editorial board of several foreign and domestic journals. I supervised 27 PhD candidates and co-supervised 32 PhD candidates. I’m also the (co-)author of more than 250 scientific peer reviewed articles and co-author of 2 scientific books.
Hiking, Weight Lifting and Wrestling.
