I am a Mechanical Engineering Ph.D. student at the University of Michigan. I received my bachelor's with honors in Mechanical Engineering and Chemistry from Sharif University of Technology in Iran. I joined Prof. Thornton's lab at the University of Michigan after working in Computational Nanoscience Lab at Washington State University for one year. Currently I am working on multi-scale modeling and simulation of rechargeable batteries. Besides research, I also have previous experience in Computer Aided Design, Manufacturing and Engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE) using commercial softwares including SolidWorks, CATIA, COMSOL and Abaqus (FEM). I am also a car enthusiast and always eager to know more and more about exotic sports cars!
