About Hamid

Hamid is a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology working in Atomistic Simulation and Energy (ASE) Lab. He received his M.S. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2013 and started his Ph.D at Georgia Tech in 2014. He also holds a B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from Karaj Azad University and he is currently working toward another M.S. degree in electrical engineering from Georgia Tech with emphasize on optoelectronics and microelectronics packaging.  Hamid’s primary research background is in heat transfer, with a specific emphasis on understanding energy transport and conversion at the atomic level. His Ph.D. research focused on understanding phonon transport in random semiconductor alloys and amorphous solids.  He has also worked on analyzing a concentrated solar power system with high-temperature thermal storage that utilizes thermophotovoltaic as a power cycle. His past research experience has been in computational fluid dynamics, electronic cooling, porous media, heat pipes, nanofluids, nanoencapsulated phase change materials, resin transfer molding processes, and turbulent flow. Prior to joining University of Missouri-Columbia, Hamid also worked as a R&D engineer in Automotive Industry Research & Innovation Center of SAIPA and MAPNA Boiler Group developing CFD models for various projects.

Hamid’s current research interests include: Optoelectroncis devices and systems, Microelectronics packaging, Solid state solar and thermal energy conversion technology development, Concentrated solar thermal energy conversion, Thermal management of high heat flux electronics, Phonon transport in bulk materials and thin films, Atomistic level modeling to study nanoscale energy and transport, and Micro/nanofabrication.
