Profile Image
Doctoral Candidate - Doctor of Philosophy


Behdad has graduated hic BSc in Mechanical Engineering - Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer - Science & Research Branch of Azad University (SRBIAU) in Tehran, Iran. His Thesis title was " Drag Coefficient and Strouhal Number Analysis of Cylindrical tubes in two phase flow. " which was basically an optimization for reducing Drag and Lift forces on a cylindrical probe in pipe. He continued his graduate studies in Biomedical Engineering - Biomechanics at Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST). With Behdad's background in fluid mechanics he chose his research title in biological fluid mechanics. The title of his MSc thesis was " Hemodynamic investigation of Subclavian-coronary Steal Syndrome in Dialysis patients with coronary artery occlusion with different stenosis percentages in subclavian artery ". This survey was conducted in order to provide clinical physicians with prescriptions to treat patiens with aforementioned conditions. Behdad started his PhD studies in University of Auckland in Auckland Bioengineering institute (ABI) on October 2017.
