About Mohammadmahdi Ghiji

Mahdi completed his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Australian Maritime College, the University of Tasmania. His PhD research focused on turbulent fluid flow dynamics occurring in and near the high-pressure diesel engine injector ‎using experimental and Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) analyses.

He is a member of Engineers Australia, Australasian Fluid Mechanic Society, and Australian and New Zealand Section of the Combustion Institute.

Since 2012, he taught subjects such as Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Mechanics of Materials, Heat Transfer, Engineering Graphics and CAD. 

He is invited to review papers from Journals of Fuel, International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, Applied Thermal Engineering, Advances in Mechanical Engineering, and International Journal of Mechanical Sciences.

Qualifications

  • PhD in Mechanical Engineering, University of Tasmania, Australia, 2017.
  • MSc in Mechanical Engineering, University Putra Malaysia, Malaysia, 2011.
  • BSc in Mechanical Engineering, University of Mazandaran, Iran, 2005.
