Mission Statement

Welcome to the website of Amir A. Aliabadi. Our group, Atmospheric Innovations Research (AIR) Laboratory, has a passion for applications of thermo-fluids in buildings and the environment. An understanding of single and multi-phase fluid mechanics, heat, and mass transfer phenomena finds many great applications in green building design, ventilation systems, renewable energy technologies, co-generation, indoor and outdoor air quality, climate change, and much more. We provide practical solutions for engineering problems that involve the study of thermo-fluid systems. We are specialized in analytical methods, simulations, and experiments and aim to integrate relevant research in universities, institutes, laboratories, and industries across multiple disciplines and around the world. We foster collaborations among students, researchers, and professionals in a variety of research projects. We hope you have a pleasant visit here and please contact us with any inquiries.

The Atmospheric Innovations Research (AIR) Laboratory has engineered a micro-climate monitoring system to measure properties of the atmosphere as well as the earth surface temperature. The system is called the Tethered And Navigated Air Blimp 2 (TANAB2)
