|Expertise:||My research is in the general area of thermofluids with an emphasis on Sustainable Energy and Fuels. This broadly includes investigations on climate-neutral fuels and thermal management of energy storage systems. Examples of the former involve a series of ongoing works on production and utilisation of hydrogen, biosyngas, ammonia and other e-fuels. The latter includes projects on thermal management of batteries and electrolysers with the aim of improving their performance. I also work on the optimisation of hybridised energy systems. Members of my research group conduct computational modelling (including data-driven approaches) and experimental studies at both fundamental and applied levels.|

I completed my first degree in mechanical engineering in 2000 at AmirKabir University of Technology in Tehran/Iran. This was followed by a master's degree in energy conversion at Sharif University of Technology, Tehran in 2002. I was awarded a PhD in 2009 for my experimental and theoretical work on unsteady combusting flows at University of Melbourne in Australia. In between 2009 and 2011, I was a Marie Currie post-doctoral researcher at Darmstadt University of Technology in Germany. I then moved to the Department of Engineering at University of Cambridge in the UK and worked there as a research associate for almost two years. In late 2013, I was appointed as a lecturer in mechanical engineering at James Watt School of Engineering, University of Glasgow where I served till early 2020. I am currently a Reader in Mechanical Engineer at the School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary University of London.
