Assistant Professor

About Me

I am a Mechanical Engineer, with MSc in Energy Conversion graduated (cum laude) at University of Semnan. I have worked for few years as a R&D engineer in Iran and later obtained my PhD at University of Twente (UT) on the “Modeling of complex physics & combustion dynamics in a combustor with a partially premixed turbulent flame”.  My PhD research was funded by the European Commission under Framework 7 (Limousine Project). After my PhD in 2015, I continued my research at UT on thermoacoustic heat pumps. In 2016, I moved to Bosch in Deventer, started working as a R&D simulation engineer. Since 2017, I returned to UT and I am currently holding a tenure track position at Department of Thermal and Fluid Engineering. I started a new research line, focused on Thermal Conversion and Storage.
