  • Biography

    Dr. Sadat is an assistant professor in UNT’s department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering. His research interests lie in the areas related to high-performance computational fluid dynamics (CFD), high fidelity fluid-structure interaction (FSI) modeling and simulation, multi-phase flows, multi-disciplinary physics-based computational methods, high-performance computing (HPC), verification and validation (V&V), uncertainty quantification (UQ), and deterministic and stochastic simulation-based design and optimization. He has published a book chapter and over 50 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers from his research studies, which were mostly supported by the Department of Defense, Office of Naval Research (ONR).

    His research group is currently working on the code development for modeling and simulation of particulate flows, bio-inspired systems, and extreme stochastic events.  

    Dr. Sadat was a research scientist and an adjunct professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Iowa for about seven years before joining UNT in 2017. Dr. Sadat completed his PhD in mechanical engineering at the University of Iowa in 2009 and was a postdoctoral research associate 2009-2010. He earned his master and undergraduate degrees at Sharif University of Technology, Tehran in 2004 and 2002, respectively.  He has collaborated actively with many national and international institutes and played a key role in several international conferences/workshops as a session chairman or member of organization committees.
