My main research interest is Aerosols. Through my M.Sc. research at Shiraz University, I have been studying state-of-the-art magnetic drug targeting methods for more efficient delivery of aerosol medications to specific sites of human airway. Moving to UBC for a PhD, my attraction to application of aerosols in combustion processes led me to the topic of soot formation. My PhD research will focus on numerical models of soot aggregation phenomena and their applications in estimation of different soot physical and optical properties. Besides, I seek to struggle with the soot characterization data inversion problems using the latest artificial intelligence and image processing methods. The results of these studies will help to assess and hopefully, reduce the climate forcing impacts of soot particles by reducing the uncertainties of associated measurements.
