Dr Amin Abolghasemi

College Lecturer in Engineering
BA, MEng, PhD

I undertook my undergraduate studies at the University of Cambridge (2011) and my doctoral studies at Imperial College London (2017).

My PhD was on simulating arrays of tidal turbines using multi-scale mesh optimisation techniques.

Research interests

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Cryogenic Engineering Group at the Department of Engineering Science. My work has mainly focused on the development of numerical models for various engineering applications. I have also carried out detailed experimental studies in order to validate the numerical models. In my current position, I am developing Stirling pulse tube cryocoolers for use in space.
