Mohammad Reza Haghgoo

I am a PhD student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan. My research area is pertinent to numerical modeling of multiphase flows, specifically, applications of turbulence modeling in gas-particle flows. Currently, I am working on numerical simulation of dens gas-particle flows inside fluidized beds as well as numerical study of an industrial cyclone separator to remove dust particles from the inlet air. Also, I am collaborating with some of my colleagues to perform numerical simulation of a vertical axis wind turbine located in the suburb of Saskatoon.

I received my Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Tabriz, Iran, where my research was focused on the numerical study of the hydrodynamics and heat transfer of Nano-fluids using multiphase theories. Additionally, I conducted numerical simulations to investigate the convective boiling process.

I received my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Shiraz University, Iran, where I developed a strong background in Engineering Mathematics, Physics, and Fluid Mechanics. I am particularly interested in areas involving numerical analysis, scientific computing, and parallel programing. On a personal note, I enjoy playing soccer and mountain climbing. I also play Tanboor (a Persian instrument).
