“Metal combustion conversion: An efficient approach towards Novel materials, Zero-carbon & Zero-emission regenerative fuels for enormous applications…”
“I am iron resisting the most enormous magnet there is…”
As a postdoctoral researcher at Eindhoven University of Technology (Power & Flow research group), I am involved in development of the metal fuels conversion concept as a novel type of fuels and a promising technology for achieving zero-emission, fully recyclable energy carrier target. As a researcher in the power & Flow group in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, I would be engaged in further development of the MILD combustion concept into the metal combustion burners and combustors.
I have started my research career as a combustion experimentalist and fluid dynamist since 2004 when I was a fresh master student. During these years, I have been involving in development of many novel combustion base thermal and energy concepts such as MILD (Moderate or Intense Low-oxygen Dilution) and combustion in small scales (Micro-combustion). I received my MSc and PhD in Aerospace Engineering both from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran polytechnic) at 2007 and 2015, respectively. After getting my PhD, I was appointed as a project assistant and then a postdoctoral researcher at Umeå University, Sweden (2015-2016; funded by Swedish Research Council (VR) and Kempe Foundation) which was proceeded by another postdoctoral position at Combustion Chemistry Centre (C3) of National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG) (2017-2020; funded by Shell research Ltd., UK and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI)). During my past postdoctoral positions, I studied hydrocarbon flames evolution and acceleration in isothermal smooth wall tubes and also the ignition delay time characteristics of C1-C3 hydrocarbons over a wide range of operating conditions using experimental and modelling approaches.
