I received my Master degree in Mechanical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology (Iran) in 2006. During my master studies I investigated the application of Computational Fluid Dynamics in ship hydrodynamics and floating body motion prediction. I obtained in 2014 a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the EPFL (Switzerland) where I developed a particle-based method for simulation of hydro-abrasive erosion phenomena in hydraulic turbines. I was then a post-doc at EPFL and University of Lugano where I improved the accuracy and computational performance of hydro-abrasive erosion models using GPU technology. Finally, I joined the LANE in January 2019 to develop new mathematical models for simulating biological development in vertebrates.
