Student Profile: Milad Ebadi
Mechatronics System of Engineering doctoral student in the Faculty of Applied Sciences
I’m a first-year Ph.D. student in the School of Mechatronics engineering. Though fluid mechanics is the focus of my work, my interests span a broad range of topics, from electronics to Persian poems. I received my BSc in Mechanical engineering from Shiraz University, an MSc from Sharif University of technology and now I’m in SFU to learn more!
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO COME TO SFU?
SFU has a great reputation in mechatronics, and especially in multidisciplinary research. My research is interdisciplinary research between biology and material engineering and fluid mechanics.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR RESEARCH OR YOUR PROGRAM TO A FAMILY MEMBER?
My research is mainly focused on novel filtration systems and their applications in virus neutralization in air conditioning.
WHAT ARE YOU PARTICULARLY ENJOYING ABOUT YOUR STUDIES/RESEARCH AT SFU?
I really enjoy working as a TA here and it helped me out to learn more because when you teach something you'll learn it better.
HAVE YOU BEEN THE RECIPIENT OF ANY MAJOR OR DONOR-FUNDED AWARDS? IF SO, PLEASE TELL US WHICH ONES AND A LITTLE ABOUT HOW THE AWARDS HAVE IMPACTED YOUR STUDIES AND/OR RESEARCH.
