I obtained my B.Sc. degree in mechanical Engineering in 2007 and my M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Energy system engineering in 2010, and 2015, respectively, all from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. During my PhD, I was a visiting scholar at the University of Waterloo, and now a Postdoctoral fellow there in the Department of Chemical Engineering, working on different projects related to the modeling and optimization of different energy conversion and storage systems.
My research interests lie at the intersection of energy system modeling, optimization, and policy recommendations and my research contributions have been to the optimal integration of sustainable energy generation and storage technologies with the current energy system. I have investigated the technical, environmental, and economic aspects of urban energy system modeling (a Micro-grid application), and power-to-gas as a feasible energy storage technology and a low-carbon sustainable energy alternative for transportation and for the hydrogen economy. My future research will be to addressing climate change issues in large scale energy system modeling.
I have had several enriching and rewarding teaching and advising experiences during graduate school and postdoc thanks to work in a large team consisting of students with different backgrounds As examples of successful mentorship, the teams that I co-advised, were the Grand prize winner (2016) and honorable winner (2018) of the Hydrogen student design contest, held by the Department of Energy (DOE) of the United States.
