Dr Omidyeganeh holds BSc degree from Sharif University of Technology in Electrical Engineering. He also obtained a joint BSc degree in Petroleum Engineering from Sharif University of Technology and Petroleum University of Technology in Iran. Then he moved to Canada in 2006 and obtained his MSc degree in Environmental Engineering at University of Calgary in 2008 where he developed a large-eddy simulation code to simulate pollution dispersion in urban environments.
He joined Professor Piomelli's research group at Queen's University in 2009 and received his PhD degree in 2013. During the PhD program, Dr Omidyeganeh focused on the subject of environmental fluid dynamics and performed large-eddy simulations to model the flow in rivers and deserts over large-scale bedforms (dunes). He published these works in the Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Journal of Turbulence, and Journal of Geophysical Research. Upon graduation, in May 2013, he was appointed as assistant professor in fluid simulation at City University. Since then Dr. Omidyeganeh has engaged to research in environmental fluid dynamics (river flows and vegetation in river restoration programs), flow control around airfoils (Humpback Whale project), and surface coatings in aeronautics (PELSKIN project).
