Mohsen Karimi

Postdoctoral researcher

Mohsen is a researcher in the division of fluid dynamics with focus on developing and applying mathematical frameworks for multiphase systems. Mohsen is passionate about computational fluid dynamics, population balance modeling, and programming.

He is involved in an interdisciplinary collaboration at Chalmers to formulate sub-grid scale models for gas-liquid mass transfer. This research provides novel mathematical models that contributes to understanding of biological, physiochemical and fluid dynamics aspects of mass transfer.
