Sina Talebi Moghaddam
Sina is a postdoctoral fellow at the Waterloo Laboratory for Inverse Analysis and Thermal Sciences (WatLIT). He completed his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Waterloo under the supervision of Prof. Kyle Daun in May, 2020. His postdoctoral research involves the development and application of optical diagnostics to measure soot emissions from oil and gas flares. This work falls under Theme 5 of the NSERC FlareNet Strategic Network. His PhD research mainly focused on the morphology characterization of soot through multi-angle light scattering and synthetic nanoparticle diagnostics through time-resolved laser-induced incandescence. During his PhD, Sina used the Bayesian approach to infer morphological parameters of soot. He also applied the approximation error technique and neural networks to approximate the light scattering behaviour of soot aggregates.
