Amin Ebrahimi is a postdoctoral researcher in the Materials Science and Engineering Department (MSE) at the faculty of Mechanical, Maritime, and Materials Engineering (3mE) of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). He completed his doctoral studies under the supervision of Prof. Ian M. Richardson and Prof. Chris R. Kleijn. His PhD research project focuses on developing a new simulation-based approach to welding process optimisation, which is funded by The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). He is closely collaborating with the Department of Chemical Engineering at TU Delft, Materials innovation institute (M2i) and the industrial partner involved in this project (Allseas). He has also supervised several masters' and bachelors' graduation/semester projects from different universities including TU Delft, University of Twente and Politecnico di Milano.

Before, he was a research and teaching assistant in the High-Performance Computing Laboratory (HPCLab) at the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad (FUM), where he completed his masters' degree. For his graduation project, he developed a numerical model based on the direct simulation Monte-Carlo (DSMC) method to study rarefied nitrogen flow in micro- and Nano-channels with variable cross-sections. During his bachelors' graduation project, he focused on heat transfer enhancement in microchannels using longitudinal vortex generators and Nanofluids.
