A. Prof. Mohammad Hossein Yazdi is a highly motivated, experienced academic staff/researcher in mechanical engineering with over 10 years of experience in Heat and Fluid Flow and Energy projects together with a demonstrated history of problem-solving level, innovative thinking and interpersonal skills gained through distinct professional roles. He is an assistant professor, former head of the mechanical engineering department at Azad University (IAU) and invited associate research member at National University of Malaysia (UKM) and International Telematic University Uninettuno in Roma, Italy. Before joining IAU, He was a senior lecturer, head of faculty research and director of Centre of Experimental and Computational Fluid Mechanics (CECFM) at INTI International University in Malaysia which was under the flag of Laureate Education Inc., a corporation based in Baltimore, Maryland, in the United States (from 2014-2016) and before that a postdoctoral research fellow at Solar Energy Research Institute at National University of Malaysia (UKM), Malaysia (From 2013-2014). He obtained his PhD in Mechanical and Materials Engineering (Energy Conversion) in 2012 at UKM-Malaysia, ranked 141st in QS World University Rankings (2008- 2012). My main research contributions are in the application of thermofluid processes in energy systems using experimental methods accompanied with analytical/numerical modeling by programming in house codes and using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software tools such as the projects, Nanofluid flow and Heat Transfer, Boundary Layer Flow and Heat Transfer, Heat Exchangers, Waste Heat Recovery, Photovoltaic/Thermal (PVT) Collectors, Hybrid Solar Systems and Entropy based Design of Thermal/Fluid Processes. Moreover, he is an innovative leader of academic programs that have a constructive influence on student achievement and the department’s growth in infrastructure and research capacity. Internationally, he has served in prominent leadership roles in education, research and industry-related projects. He is also global research consultant and gained strong international experience with collaboration with some of the world’s prominent research institutes (FTSMalaysia, SERI UKM-Malaysia, La Sapienza Roma, SUSU-Russia, INTI IUMalaysia, SEGi Uni-Malaysia). In particular, he developed a very strong collaboration in the field of fluid mechanics and heat transfer analysis with UKM-Malaysia working on the novel theoretical, numerical and experimental approaches on thermofluid modeling for energy efficiency applications. He has many technical publications in Tier 1 journals that have received a total of over 1400 citations.
