I have the experience of working with Prof. Khodadadi at Auburn university as a research assistant during my Master's studies . I am currently a research assistant at University of Virginia under Prof. Norris supervisory.

My research interests are mainly in nanoscale thermal transport. Using molecular dynamics simulations, thermal transport within the structures is being investigated and we try to understand the physics underlying the thermal transport problem.
My Thesis in Auburn was about investigating the effect of the length of the n-alkanes molecular chains on thermal conductivity and thermal boundary conductance of n-alkanes using both MD simulations and transient plane source techniques.
