Prof. Dr. Maged Marghany (1967) was awarded the ESA Post-doctoral Fellowship by the International Institute of Aerospace and Earth Observation (ITC) in Enschede, the Netherlands, funded by the European Space Agency (ESA) from March 2000 to March 2001. He obtained his Ph.D in Environmental Remote Sensing from University Putra Malaysia and MSc. in Physical Oceanography from University Pertanian Malaysia. He was awarded the best speaker from the Japanese Society of Remote Sensing due to his outstanding presentation at Asian Conference on Remote Sensing held in 1998 at the Terades Hotel in Manila. During his professional career, he has carried out research on the application of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data to coastal studies in two main domains: (1) wave spectra modelling of SAR data and their effects on shoreline changes; and (2) internal wave detection of polarized SAR data and automatic detection of oil spills by utilizing different texture algorithms. Over 18 years, he served as a lecturer in many Malaysian universities. During that period he was leading several projects related to the application of SAR to coastal waters, funded by Ministry of Science and Technology, Malaysia (MOSTE). His research is directed towards the use of SAR data for modelling shoreline changes and developing a new approach for forecasting oil slick trajectory movements. He teaches at postgraduate levels on the topic of digital image processing and microwave remote sensing. He has published over 200 papers in international conferences and indexed journals.
