Expertise: My research focuses on Thermofluids, with a particular emphasis on Sustainable Energy and Fuels. This encompasses a broad range of investigations into climate-neutral fuels and thermal management in energy technologies. Specifically, our ongoing work includes the production and utilisation of hydrogen, biosyngas, ammonia, and other e-fuels. Additionally, we are involved in projects aimed at enhancing heat and mass transfer in chemical reactors, process equipment and electrolysers to improve their performance. My research also includes the modelling and optimisation of hybridised energy systems. Members of my research group engage in computational and data-driven modelling, as well as experimental studies, at both …

Brief Biography

I completed my bachelor's and master's degrees in mechanical engineering at AmirKabir University of Technology and Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, Iran. I was awarded a PhD in 2009 from the University of Melbourne in Australia for my experimental and theoretical work on unsteady combusting flows. Between 2009 and 2011, I served as a Marie Curie post-doctoral researcher at Darmstadt University of Technology in Germany. Following this, I moved to the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge in the UK, where I worked as a research associate for almost two years. In 2013, I was appointed as a lecturer in mechanical engineering at the James Watt School of Engineering, University of Glasgow, where I served until early 2020. I am currently a Reader in Mechanical Engineering at the School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary University of London.
