Ataei Dadavi, I.

Profile

I am a mechanical engineer and a researcher specialized in fluid mechanics and heat transfer. My education and experiences are as follows:

  • PhD in Chemical/Mechanical Engineering at Delft University of Technology, Netherlands, 2015 – 2019 
  • Research Scientist at Helmholtz Centre for Environment Research, Germany, 2014 – 2015
  • Energy Engineer at Energy Systems Improvement Laboratory, Iran, 2013 – 2014 
  • MSc in Aerospace Engineering at Sharif University of Technology, Iran, 2010 – 2012 
  • BSc in Mechanical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology, Iran, 2006 – 2010

Research

My research interests are experimental fluid dynamics and heat transfer, fluid flow in porous media, and thermal convection. Currently, I am working on the experimental determination of degassing kinetics in high-temperature and high-salinity fluids and the effect of the resulting gas bubbles in flow in porous media with the application in geothermal energy extraction.
