Dr. Mason Marzbali
Dr. Mason Marzbali joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering at AUD in Fall 2017. He received his Master's and PhD from Mechanical, Industrial and Aerospace Engineering (MIAE) Department at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. His PhD thesis, titled "Numerical Analysis of High-speed Droplet Impingement on Elastic and Rigid Substrates", involved the development of a fully coupled free-surface flow solver to a solid Finite Element solver. The results of this analysis help the power generation and aerospace industries to understand the mechanisms of water erosion on critical surfaces such as gas turbine blades and engineer novel coatings that are more resistant to liquid impingement erosion. He is holder of an international patent, "Engineered surfaces with high receding angles for erosion prevention", with Siemens Canada.

He has published several technical articles and conference papers and his research interests include:
Liquid Impingement Erosion (LIE) and Fluid-Solid Interaction (FSI) modelling
Compressible droplet impact onto elastic and rigid substrates
Two-phase and interfacial flows
Primary breakup of circular and elliptical liquid jets in a cross-flow
Fuel spray and atomization

Dr. Marzbali was a part-time lecturer at Concordia University, where he taught undergraduate courses, and his teaching interests at AUD include:
Energy Systems
Internal Combustion Engines
Heat & Mass Transfer
Fluid Dynamics
Computational Fluid Dynamics

He has also received several prestigious awards and scholarships during his graduate studies:
Concordia Accelerator Award
Carolyn Renaud Teaching Assistantship Award
Hydro Quebec Study Award
Concordia Tuition Fee Remission Award
Concordia Partial Tuition Scholarship
