Know About Me

Nima graduated with a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering and a master's degree in Structural Civil Engineering from the University of Tabriz (One of the ten top universities in Iran). He is currently studying Ph.D. at Florida International University (FIU) with Prof. Amal Elawady in wind engineering. In addition, Nima is research assistant at the NSF-NHERI Wall of Wind (WOW) Experimental Facility. He worked as a researcher at the Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST) with distinguished Prof. Ali Kaveh.. His main research interests lie in steel structures, particularly in the experimental and numerical investigation of Steel braced frames with Prof. Siamak Talatahari. In addition, he has been actively involved in engineering optimization, especially Evolutionary algorithms, with Prof. Seyed Ali Mirjalili. Using comprehensive finite element analyses, he has also investigated different shaped sections in steel frames. Recently, he has been engaged in research in the area of engineering optimization, especially in solving large-scale and practical structural design problems.
