Afsoon Amirzadeh joined the Mechanical Engineering Department in 2011. She obtained her PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Toronto in 2010. During her graduate studies at the Centre for Advanced Coating Technologies (CACT), Dr. Amirzadeh designed a pneumatic drop-on-demand droplet generator for producing micro-droplets (< 100 microns) of aqueous solutions and molten metals, with applications in bioengineering, rapid prototyping, and micro-soldering. In addition to academic research and teaching, Dr. Amirzadeh gained industrial experience as an experimentalist, and established a climate simulation lab to test auto vehicle parts using international standards.
