Mohammad Reza has attended University of Tehran during 1997-2007 for B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D., continuously. During this 10 year period, he was involved in specializing in different aspects of thermo-fluids problems especially in design, performance improvement and optimization of energy systems. Graduating from University of Tehran in 2007, he joined Department of Mechanical Engineering, Isfahan University of Technology as ‘Assistant Professor’ in late 2007. During these years, besides instructing various thermo-fluid undergraduate and graduate courses, he supervised several graduate students in both M.Sc. and Ph.D. levels.
Due to exceptional teaching and research activities, he has promoted to ‘Associate Professor’ and ‘Full Professor” in January. 2012 and January. 2016, respectively. Moreover, he was honored by selecting as the ‘Distinguished Researcher’ of the Isfahan University of Technology in 2012; and the “Distinguished Young Scientist of Engineering of Iran” by Iranian Academy of Sciences, 2017.
The research activities of Mohammad Reza led to publishing more than 80 original papers in highly ranked international journals and presenting more than 30 papers in national and international conferences. These papers attracted high attention of his peers which resulted in high citations of his papers.
Mohammad Reza works mainly on “Thermal Design and Optimization” field. In industry, there are a lot of systems which involve thermal energy transfer and conversion. Due to the significant role of energy issues in these systems like cost and environmental aspects, the optimization of these systems is vital. His research mainly focuses on thermal design and optimization of “heat exchangers” and “electronics cooling systems”. Heat exchangers are used in a wide variety of applications including desalination systems, power plants, petro-chemical plants, and refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. The primary research of Dr. Salimpour was on design, optimization and performance improvement of heat exchangers. On the other hand, the fast advancing in electronics industries has increased the need of high cooling rates at small scales. Therefore, one can say that one of the fundamental challenges in heat transfer science is electronics cooling. Beside the high cooling rate, this kind of cooling is associated with space limitation and cooling method constraint. His recent research has been focused on the design and optimization of electronics cooling systems.
