Dr. Ahmadreza Abbasi Baharanchi is a Postdoctoral Researcher and an Adjunct Professor at Florida International University. Dr. Baharanchi received his Bachelor, Masters, and PhD degrees all in Mechanical Engineering from Isfahan University of Technology in Iran (B.Sc.), Technological University of Malaysia (M.Sc.), and Florida International University (PhD), respectively. His research experiences include computational fluid dynamics modeling in variety of applications, such as fluidization, mixing and transport of Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids, Atomization, heat transfer, and design and optimization of engine intake and exhaust systems. His industrial experiences include inspection, test, and analysis of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) for vehicles, as wells as mechanical design of water and waste water and HVAC for residential buildings. Currently, at ARC, Dr. Baharanchi is involved in the Department of Energy (DOE) research projects on high level nuclear waste management, addressing issues related to waste mixing and transport. He is also actively engaged in teaching mechanical engineering courses covering solid modeling and heat transfer.
