Bahamin Bazooyar is a research fellow at the Centre for advanced power trains and Fuels. He is the task leader for the delivery of £2.3M to develop a zero-emission 50kW Hydrogen auxiliary engine demonstrator at Brunel University. He joined the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering in mid-2023. Previously, Bahamin worked for Staffordshire University, Cranfield University, and the University of Manchester in turbulent combustion, calcination and, gasification. His research activities include the procurement and delivery of over £5m project in decarbonisation of heat and power. He is a CFD engineer and specialist who supervised and delivered over 25 industry-led CFD consultancies and projects.

Bahamin has a Ph.D. in Chemical engineering in a dual degree program between the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He graduated Summa Cum Laude with the highest honours and distinction in all stages of his education in B.Eng, MSc, and Ph.D. degrees with (GPA:4/4). He was nominated as Best Researcher of the Year by Ministry of Science in 2016 because of his novel and state of art research activities in biofuels and clean combustion technologies. Previously, Bahamin acted as a senior process manager and designer of a 12 kWe micro gas turbine combustor for renewable fuels, a supersonic separator for natural gas dehydration, a novel catalytic combustor for micro electrical mechanical system and a hydrogen flameless combustor.

Bahamin's research activity is general, but mostly targetting applied mathematics in the description and representation of transport phenomena. Currently, Bahamin is looking into hire and working with potent Ph.D. and MSc students in stochastic differential equations, combustion mixing models, and turbulence-chemistry models. Bahamin is an author of over 40 high-ranked journal publications, one textbook, six-book chapters, five conferences, and presentations and reviewed over 120 journal publications in Elsevier, ACS, and ASME. He is the main author of one of the top downloaded articles and the two most cited articles in the Americal Society of Mechanical Engineering and Elsevier. Bahamin is now looking for the exploitation of deep learning and artificial intelligence to solve engineering problems including the representation of intermittency and the stochastic nature of the physical phenomenon.
