The University of Manchester is a world class university with a wide range of scientific disciplines and particular strengths in the engineering field.
Prior to coming to the University of Manchester, I gained a Mechanical Engineering BSc and Aerospace Engineering MSc from Amirkabir University of Technology. I was awarded a fully-funded PhD research scholarship from the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, during which I successfully investigated the effects of elevated pressures, fuel type, flow rate and co-flow air on combustion dynamics and instabilities. The PhD experience also showed me how to perform research and meet the deadlines and goals of a project; giving me the confidence required for my current role at Cranfield University.
The University of Manchester is a world class university with a wide range of scientific disciplines and particular strengths in the engineering field. The University is at the heart of the city, and offers access to a variety of innovative enterprise programmes which help motivate you to work hard.
I joined Cranfield University as a Research Fellow in Energy Processes, and have since worked on five industrially-funded projects, including Oxy-fuel combustion for CO2 Capture and Storage (CSS), multi-scale systems modelling for CSS analysis and optimisation, and UK energy futures.
In terms of teaching activities, I have developed material for two new postgraduate courses offered by the university - Energy Supply for Low Carbon Futures and Renewable Energy Technology – on which I also lecture. In 2012 I became the module director for the Energy and Fuel Conversion module.
My role is good combination of academia and industry, and I find it exciting that my research and technical expertise directly contribute to society by addressing and resolving current issues in the energy industry.
