I joined the Centre for Water Systems (CWS) at the University of Exeter in May 2015. I am doing a project on the effect of debris blockage and scour at masonry bridges under flood conditions via physical (experimental) modelling. This is a multi-disciplinary project in which I collaborate with Professor Djordjevic, Dr Prakash Kripakaran and Dr Gavin Tabor from CWS, Dr Scott Arthur from Heriot-Watt University, Professor Dusan Prodanovic from University of Belgrade, and an industry consortium composed of major stakeholders involved in UK bridge management.
Prior to my appointment at CWS, I completed my PhD in Queen’s University, Canada, where I did substantial physical modelling of flow, bank erosion and planimetric changes in meandering streams in the River and Estuarine Morphodynamics Facility of Queen's University. During this, I have also been involved in teaching three courses in undergraduate civil engineering program, including Fluid Mechanics, Hydrology and River Engineering.
I did my MSc in Marine Structures Engineering in University of Tehran, Iran. The degree was focusing on coastal engineering and marine construction, and I did my thesis on numerical simulation of scour and trench migration in 2DV free surface flows.
