Dr. Arabkoohsar did both of his master's and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering, associated with Energy Conversion and Sustainability. In 2016, I joined the Department of Engineering of Aarhus University of Denmark as a postdoctoral fellow and then did his second postdoc at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands. He started his new career as a faculty member of Department of Energy Technology of Aalborg University, Denmark in January 2018. His main field of research include Thermodynamic Modeling and Optimization of Thermal Energy Systems and Mechanical Energy Storage Systems. He has published over 40 articles in top-ranked international journals so far and he is acting as a reviewer and editorial board member of a number of international journals and conferences.
