My research interests include computational materials joining (in particular, high-velocity impact welding), non-conventional joining and forming processes, damage and failure analysis, materials characterization, dynamic behavior of materials, experimental testing, and mathematical modeling.
I received my B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering (2004) and M.Sc. in Aerospace Engineering (2007) from Sharif University of Technology (SUT), Tehran, Iran. After working in industry for a few years, I began my work at University of New Hampshire (UNH) where I received my M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics (2013) and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering (2015).
I continued my career at UNH as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Mechanics, Materials & Manufacturing Lab until March 2016. In April 2016, I joined OSU as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence (CDME) with joint appointments in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) and SIMCenter. As of May 2017, I am working as a research scientist at SIMCenter.
