Postdoctoral Research Associate
Office: EB1- 1034
Mahdi Ramezani is currently a postdoctoral research assistant in the Abolhasani lab of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the North Carolina State University. He graduated with his Masters in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Tehran before moving to the US and receiving his Ph.D. from the Iowa State University majoring in Mechanical Engineering and minoring in Chemical Engineering. Most of his research is focused on the experimental investigation of thermo-fluid systems focusing on interdisciplinary topics. Throughout his academic career, he designed multiple reactors including Taylor-Couette, fluidized bed, and bubble column and studied fluid mechanics, heat transfer, and mass transfer using different techniques such as Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), fast camera videography, concentration measurement, and image analysis. He has extensive experience with experiment design, numerical simulation, data collection and analysis, image and video processing, and product development.
Mahdi is developing a better understanding of alcohol oxidation by using the automated high-throughput screening platform in our lab to identify the role of various substrates, solvents, and catalysts on this process as well as the effect of temperature, pressure, and mixing.
