Senior Lecturer in Dynamics

Background: 

Having obtained my BSc and MSc in the area of thermo-fluids, I started my first engineering job in 2004 as an R&D expert in Charkheshghar (ZF subsidiary in Iran). My main role was to participate in a transmission design project as well as acting as an application engineer.

In 2009, I joined Urmia University of Technology, Iran, as an Assistant Lecturer. Then I joined Loughborough University in 2010 as a PhD student to work on the tribology and dynamics of automotive transmissions and differentials.  Following positions in the School as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate and Lecturer in Dynamics, in 2018 I was appointed a Senior Lecturer in Dynamics.
