After more than a decade of international industrial experience in Northern Europe and Western Asia, Sadegh Seddighi joined the department of mechanical engineering in 2014. His work experience and research from year 2000 has been focusing on Energy Technology, Fluid Mechanics, Reaction Kinetics and Heat Transfer.
In Northern European industries, he developed modelling tools for near-zero emission energy technology from 2009 to 2014. His work in Northern Europe involved experimental and modeling work in multi-phase flow and reaction kinetics. The project has been financed by the energy industry and successfully developed design tools for the large-scale clean power plants. Prior to that, he worked around four years as a field engineer in oil and gas industry, i.e. natural gas field development. In addition he has had industrially funded research on energy consumption efficiency, automotive after treatment systems, propulsion systems.
