Mohammad-Reza (Mahraz) Raveshi
I graduated from National Organization for Development of Exceptional Talents High School Sari Branch in 2004 and received my B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from K.N. Toosi University of Technology in 2009. After which I completed my M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Energy Conversion from the same university, supervised by Professor Ali Keshavarz in 2012, I moved to Melbourne, Australia to pursue my graduate studies to obtain a PhD degree.
Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer are the fields of study which engaged my interest. I learned that experimental research is one of the main objectives of my academic life and to this end; I opened the experimental door with my M.Sc. Designing a Pool Boiling setup for my experiments was a comprehensive example that utilised my knowledge in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, multi-phase and turbulence, simultaneously.
After joining the Laboratory for Microsystems (LMS) at Monash University, I designed a valve-induced splitting and mergining system for microdroplets with high selectivity and efficiency. Herein, I am working to characterize and optimize my system and develop it for the industrial purposes.Furthermore, I seek to integrate selective partitioning of droplets via single layer valves with internal droplet manipulation techniques using surface acoustic waves to enable concentration, trapping and enrichment of particles inside droplets, exploiting the advantage of both techniques.
In my spare time I enjoy physical activities such as cooking, watching movies, running and sweating it out in the gym. I love history and learning different cultures and whenever I have enough time I usually pack my bag and travel to new places to explore the world.
