Mojtaba Ahmadi-Baloutaki

Mojtaba's research work focuses on developing economized and parallel Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) codes for the simulation of the atmospheric boundary layers. His research work also involves driving and validating CFD with experimental field observations.

Ph.D. Students

Mohsen Moradi

Mohsen's research work focuses on developing fast and accurate Urban Atmospheric Models (UAMs). UAMs allow prediction of urban micro-climate and pollution dispersion. UAMs can be used stand-alone toward sustainable urban development or integrated in regional numerical weather prediction or air quality models.

Hossam Elmaghraby Abdelaal

Co-advised with Emily Chiang, Hossam's research work focuses mainly on studying the dispersion of infectious airborne particles generated by expiratory events, such as coughing and sneezing, of passengers in an aircraft cabin environment using computational simulation tools. Both personalized air supply through overhead gaspers providing zonal air streams from above the heads of the occupants, and the conventional mixing air supply through ceiling slot vents are investigated as possible means of controlling and mitigating the infection caused by these airborne particles.

Seyedahamd Kia

Seyedahmad's research involves development and parametric runs of economized Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models with applications in atmospheric boundary layer research. Such models are developed to predict transport phenomena at large scales.

M.A.Sc. Students

Nick Veriotes

Co-advised with Mohammad Biglarbegian, Nick's research involves accurate quantification of greenhouse gas emissions from mining facilities. He is focused on a combination of experimental and modelling approaches for such quantification to identify diurnal and seasonal changes in greenhouse gas emissions from mining facilities.

Ryan Byerlay

Ryan's research involves experimental investigations of the atmospheric boundary layer. This research aims to develop measurement techniques to probe micro-climate and air pollution with high spatiotemporal resolution near the earth surface. Ryan's focus is on airborne platforms.

Rafsan Nahian

Rafsan's research involves experimental investigations of the atmospheric boundary layer. This research aims to develop measurement techniques to probe micro-climate and air pollution with high spatiotemporal resolution near the earth surface. Rafsan's focus is on fixed land-based platforms.

Denis Clement

Co-advised with Bahram Gharabaghi, Denis research involves investigation of Lake Simcoe phosphorus loading in Ontario, Canada, toward the protection of water resources.

Amir Nazem

Amir's research involves experimental and numerical investigations of atmospheric flows with Green House Gas (GHG) emissions over mining facilities. This research aims to quantify emissions from complex and large terrains that have experienced land surface modifications.

M.Eng. Students

Undergraduate Students

Heaven Lin, Taylr Cawte, and Adam Daigneault

Heaven, Taylr, and Adam are designing the next generation of the Tethered And Navigated Air Blimp (TANAB) for atmospheric sensing. Their design may involve new approaches to integrate air quality sensors, a reliable insulation system for cold temperature performance, or mechanical attachment to the balloon.
