Attending Week 2
Dr. Sadaf Sobhani is an assistant professor at the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University. She received her doctorate degree in mechanical engineering from Stanford University, where she also completed her bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Her dissertation focused on volume-averaged and pore-scale simulations of combustion in porous materials as well as non-intrusive x-ray diagnostics development. During her Ph.D., she worked as a research associate at the NASA Ames Research Center, where she combined high-fidelity simulations with x-ray tomography to study radiative heat transfer in thermal protection fibrous materials. She later joined the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as a postdoctoral researcher in the simulation and modeling of electrochemical systems for carbon conversion. After a decade of studying and working in the bay area, she moved across the country to join the faculty at Cornell.
