Dr Ehsan Alborzi is a Research Fellow specialising in Aviation Fuels and Lubricant, with an extensive knowledge of chemical kinetics and quantum chemistry. His expertise is in the construction of detailed and reduced predictive models for fuel thermal oxidative stability and surface carbonaceous deposits in aero-engine fuel injection system.
Dr. Alborzi completed his PhD in 2009, in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, at the University of Sheffield, in numerical modelling and experimental investigation of aviation fuel thermal stability and surface carbonaceous deposition. Since the completion of his PhD, he has worked in a number of national and international research projects dealing with aviation fuel and lubricant thermal stability as well as aviation fuel selective filteraction in close collaboration with Rolls Royce, MoD, Air BP, Shell Aviation, Total, DLR, ONERA, COMOTI, Toyota Motor Europe and Johnson Matthey.
He is currently working with the Sustainable Aviation Fuels Innovation Centre and the Translational Energy Research Center on research themes related to sustainable aviation fuel such as fuel compositional-properties relationships, technical suitability of aviation fuels for application in aero-engines and material compatibility.
Dr. Alborzi has been Investigator of a number of European and Innovate UK awards and has a key role as the project coordinator and project manager. He has supervised a number of MSc and PhD students in the Departments of Mechanical and Chemical Engineering at the University of Sheffield. He is a Fellow of the Higher Education Authority (FHEA).
