Research and expertise
I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Civil Engineering, majoring in Hydraulic Structure. My expertise is in numerical modelling, programming, and development, focusing on Hydraulics and Structural modelling.
I am quite familiar with FEM, FDM, FVM, and CFD in general. In the structural aspect, however, I have gained some skills in Plasticity and working with constitutive material models, as well as in-depth FEM understanding.
I have a sincere passion for learning new skills, such as Machine Learning, Statistical Analysis, Fluid-Structure Interaction, Soil-Structure Interaction, Turbulence, and High-Performance Computing.
Current Research Activity
I am currently working on rainfall-induced landslides. As landslides are already a fairly complicated subject to tackle, it seems that limiting the research to a more specific type would be reasonable. This drew some questions, such as how to model rainfall infiltration, analyze slope stability, and use a GPU-Accelerated numerical architecture for them.
Recently Completed Research Projects
My Master’s thesis title was “Evaluation of the Response of a Buried Pipeline, Subjected to a Surface Explosion”. This research was done numerically, using the FEM method (LS-DYNA), involving appropriate material models for soil, steel pipe, and contacts between soil, pipe, and water in the pipe.

Recently Completed Projects
- May 2021 – April 2023: Moshaver Danesh Sabz Jonoob Engineering Company. Project title: Design of Dam and Watershed Management Structures for the Parsian Region in Iran.
- May 2020 – May 2021: Hormozgan University, Hormozgan, Iran. Project title: Structural Health Monitoring of the No. 7, 8, and 10 Spans of the Access Bridge of the Persian Gulf Special Zone Port Using Statistical Bayesian Method.
- July 2019 – April 2020: Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran, Iran. Project title: Collecting and Assorting Existing International Seismic Codes and Standards for Resistant Design of Pipelines, Steel and Non-steel Connections Subjected to Earthquake for Tehran Sewage Pipeline.
I graduated with a BSc from the Sharif University of Technology in Iran in Civil Engineering, one of the most prestigious universities in Iran. I gained a Master’s from Tarbiat Modares University in Iran, majoring in Hydraulic Structures.
I participated in some research projects both during my studies and following graduation, which, because they were project-based, provided useful skills and experiences, through which I am pursuing my PhD with ABCE, here at Loughborough University.
