Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow
Mahdi Azarpeyvand is interested in taking PhD students.
University of Cambridge,
Dr Azarpeyvand graduated from the IUST in 2004 in Mechanical Engineering and obtained a PhD degree in Aeroacoustics and Fluid Mechanics in 2008 from the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research, University of Southampton. His PhD was on noise prediction for high speed turbulent jet flows using a RANS-based method. He then started working at the ISVR as a research fellow, working on a wide range of acoustical problems, such a jet-wing interaction noise, duct acoustics, underwater acoustics, innovative airfoil designs, etc. Dr Mahdi Azarpeyvand was awarded Royal Academy of Engineering research fellowship in 2011 and joined the Fluid Mechanics group at the University of Cambridge to conduct research in the area of wind turbine and open propeller noise. His other current research activities include acoustic manipulation of micro- and nano-scale particles, pipe leak detection, and aeroacoustics.
Current PhD opportunities:
1) Acoustic manipulation of miro- and nano-scale particles, (Self-funded and externally funded students)
2) Aeroacoustics and hydrodynamics of turbulent jet flows (Self-funded and externally funded students)
3) Wind turbine noise prediction, (Self-funded and externally funded students)
4) Structural vibration of off-shore wind-turbines, (Self-funded and externally funded students)
