Nima completed his bachelor and master's degree in Mechanical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology in Iran. He received his PhD in Mechanics of Solid and Fluids from Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) in 2009 in Switzerland followed by a 6-months postdoctoral fellow at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETHZ).
Nima Joined the school of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science in 2013. Prior to that he was an assistant professor in the department of Earth and Environment at Boston University.
Nima has broad research interests in miscible, immiscible multiphase flow and transport phenomena in porous media which is ubiquitous in many engineering and environmental processes. The main goal of his research is to provide a better physical understanding of the mechanisms governing micro- and macro-scale dynamics of various interfacial and multiphase flow processes in porous media by combining various theoretical and cutting-edge experimental approaches.
