• Omid Amili is an Assistant Professor in mechanical engineering at the University of Toledo and the director of the Fluid Flow Imaging Laboratory. His lab uses physical experiments complemented by numerical simulations to investigate the physics of fluids in complex settings. The research focus has been primarily on unladen and particle-laden turbulence, high-speed flows, and biological-related flows. A wide range of optical and non-optical methods including high-speed imaging, particle image/tracking velocimetry (PIV/PTV), holography, schlieren, phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (4D-Flow MRI), and acoustic measurements are used and further developed. Dr. Amili teaches thermal-fluids courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels that include Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, and Intermediate/Advanced Fluid Mechanics. He earned his bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering along with a master's degree in biomedical engineering both from Tehran Polytechnic in 2003 and 2005, respectively. He holds a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Monash University, Melbourne. Prior to joining his current position, he was a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, between 2015 and 2019.
