Amir has a Bachelor and Master of Chemical Engineering (2004 and 2006). He Proposed a new three-parameter cubic equation of state for non-associating and associating fluids with the highest possible precision for VLE data prediction; 1.57% and 1.62% average deviation for liquid density prediction of non-associating and some associating fluids, respectively. Amir has almost 7 years industry work experience in different fields of operation, design, research and development. He participated in design and operation of gas conditioning / compression facilities and GTL pilot plant working with iron catalysis. Amir has been an Associate Member of Institute of Chemical Engineers (AMIChemE) since 2012, and raci since 2018. Amir have been working on 2D materials for anode of rechargeable batteries, which is considered as one of the main sources of clean energy. He mainly applies density functional theory (DFT, as a part of quantum mechanics) to study the adsorption mechanism of different alkali metals on two dimensional carbonaceous materials such as graphene basal plane. So far he has proposed the mechanism of sodium adsorption on graphdiyne as anode material of rechargeable batteries. Furthermore, he studied the adsorption and intercalation of sodium and calcium on hydrogenated defective graphene, as to be graphene basal plane with one mono-vacancy and one hydrogen in it. Further studies include the adsorption of lithium, sodium and calcium on the graphene based nano-ribbons with functional group on the edge, such hydroxyl, carbonyl, carboxyl, etc.
