Amir Malakizadi

Researcher, division of Materials and manufacture, Industrial and materials science

Amir Malakizadi's main focus is placed on FE simulation of materials processing. In particular, he has worked on simulation of various heat treatment and metal cutting processes. His current research activities aim at developing methods and models for reliable estimations of tool wear in metal cutting process. Apart from the common experimental approaches, he uses FE modelling as a tool for optimisation of machining operations.

Amir Malakizadi received his B.Sc in Materials Engineering at Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic) in 2008 and his M.Sc in Advanced Engineering Materials at Chalmers University of Technology in 2010.

Before coming to Sweden, he worked in a CAE division of an engine design company for more than two years and was involved in different research and development activities, for instance developing different post-processing codes for the fatigue lifetime prediction based on Finite Element (FE) simulation results.
