As a postdoctoral researcher in Department of Thermal and Fluid Engineering, my effort is to carry out interdisciplinary research that can provide insightful information on the application of the encapsulated phase change materials (EPCMs) exclusively in thermal storage slurries for direct solar collectors (DASC). In the past several years my main research as well as a considerable portion of my applied and collaborative work addresses the utilization of renewable and sustainable energies like solar energy by utilizing PCMs. My doctoral dissertation (2013-2016) in the field of mechanical engineering was conducted at University of Malaya about the preparation and investigation of encapsulated materials for solar energy storage systems. as a postdoctoral researcher at Tarbiat Modares Uninversity in 2016, I focused on the preparation and applications of photothemal shaped stabilized phase change materials. In addition to my work in thermal energy storage, I have also worked on other collaborative projects dealing with novel graphene based nanofluids in heat transfer systems.
