Amir earned his M.S in applied mathematics and PhD in structural engineering from The University of Akron in 2015 with focus on computational mechanics. After his PhD, he spent three years at Northeastern University as a postdoctoral research associate developing a continuum solvation model. In addition, he worked on a coupled electromechanical model for heart to study the relation between mechanical and electrical response of the heart during tachycardia and ventricle fibrillation. His area of expertise include numerical methods, physical modeling, and scientific computing. Before joining Applied BioMath, Amir was a project consultant at Simpson, Gumpertz, and Heger.
