Post Doctoral Scholars

Saeed Talebzadeh

Saeed Talebzadeh: Saeed's research work focuses on developing economized and parallel Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) codes for the simulation of the atmospheric boundary layers. Such codes enable simulating physics of the atmospheric boundary layers for industrial applications efficiently.

Manoj K. Kizhakkeniyil

Manoj K. Kizhakkeniyil: Manoj'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 interfacing CFD with mesoscale or other low order atmospheric or dispersion models.

Ph.D. Students

Mohsen Moradi

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

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.

Seyedahmad Kia

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

Ryan Byerlay

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 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

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 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

Benjamin Dyer

Benjamin Dyer: Ben is a visiting student from McMaster university and assists the AIR lab research group to conduct an urban microclimate campaign on UofG's campus. His research involves development, installation, operation, data collection, and data analysis of land-based and airborne climate-sensing platforms.
