Dr. Amin Abolghasemi undertook his undergraduate studies at the University of Cambridge (2011) and his doctoral studies at Imperial College London (2017). His PhD was on simulating arrays of tidal turbines using multi-scale mesh optimisation techniques.

Amin is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Cryogenic Engineering Group at the Department of Engineering Science. His work has mainly focused on the development of numerical models for various engineering applications. He has also carried out detailed experimental studies in order to validate the numerical models.

In his current position, Amin is developing Stirling pulse tube cryocoolers for use in space.
