About Me

I am currently a post-doctoral fellow at the School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology and will start as an Assistant Professor at Texas A&M University in Fall 2017. I obtained my Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from University of California, Irvine under supervision of Prof. William Sirignano and my Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran.

My Research Interests

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Multiphase Flow, Fluid Instability, Atomization, Spray Combustion, Turbulent Reacting Flows
  • Thermal Hydraulic Behavior of Supercritical Fluids
  • Advanced Power Conversion Cycles
  • Flow in Porous Media

My research focuses on computational fluid dynamics with application in energy conversion in nuclear, solar, and thermal systems, energy storage, and engine emission control. My research experience encompasses the simulation of reacting and non-reacting flows, single and multiphase flows, flow instability and mixing, liquid stream break-up, spray atomization, spray combustion, vortex dynamics, cavitating and condensating flows, thermal hydraulic behavior of supercritical flows, flow in porous media, and heat exchanger design for super-critical carbon dioxide energy cycles. I have also developed skills in experimental fluid dynamics, e.g. optical diagnostics and flow measurement techniques. In my future research, I plan to develop new computational models suitable for high performance computing with high scalability to aid designing clean and efficient energy conversion devices.
