Mahsa Ebrahim is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA. She teaches undergraduate courses in Thermal-Fluid Science. Dr. Ebrahim received her B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from K.N.Toosi University of Technology in 2009. She earned her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Villanova University in 2017. Dr. Ebrahim performs experimental, numerical research in Thermo-Fluid field and her work has centered on spray cooling, droplet impingement, multi-phase flows, interfacial flows and phase interactions. She has collaborated with the University of Leeds in developing lattice Boltzmann model for small scale droplet impingement simulations. She has been able to develop analytical models as well as correlations for droplet impingement based on her comprehensive experimental and numerical data and physical comprehension. Her latest publication in the Journal of Physics of Fluids was identified as a newsworthy article for the journal highlights.
Nickolas Ramos– Nick joined the lab in summer 2019. He is a senior in Mechanical Engineering and is currently working on the design of a micrometer size piezoelectric droplet generator.
Buddha Elkenani– Buddha joined the lab in Fall 2018. He is currently a senior in Mechanical Engineering. Buddha has written programs to automatically post process numerous experimental data files and to image process the high-speed video files. He has also worked on the measurement of the cooling efficiency of an air cooled prototype Brachytherapy Needle.
Andrew Narag– Andrew worked in the lab during the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 semesters. He is currently a senior in Mechanical Engineering. He worked on the prototype design of a force convective cooled Brachytherapy Needle.
