He oversees geotechnical analyses, designs, project budgets and schedules, and project specifications.
Talebi comes to MEA from the University of Delaware, where he earned his Ph.D. in Geotechnical Engineering. He has also worked as the head of the Geotechnical and Structural Division of the Iranian Water, Power, & Resources Development Co. in Tehran.
