Iman Rahimipetroudi is a postdoctoral research scholar at Arizona State University's LightWorks® (United States) since November 2022, and he has been focusing on research related to solar-driven fuel production. He has a BS in Mechanical Engineering-Thermal and Fluids (2010) and an MS in Mechanical Engineering-Energy Conversion (2013) from the Azad University-Sari branch (Iran). He gained experience applying and implementing semi-analytical methods for predicting fluid flow and heat transfer behaviors that arise in many engineering applications. In December 2017, He started working in a nine-month trainee position at the Korea Institute of Energy Research (South Korea). During this period, he has gained experience in emission control methods during combustion systems, renewable and green sources of energy hydrogen production, and solid oxide fuel cells. In February 2022, he obtained his Ph.D. in Advanced Energy and System Engineering from the University of Science and Technology (South Korea) at the Korea Institute of Energy Research (KIER) campus. His thesis focused on computational modeling and design for developing environment-friendly power systems: 1.5 MW coal-natural gas co-firing boiler, 250 kg/day hydrogen production system, and 5 kW-class solid oxide fuel cell power system.
