Mr Mohammad Mohsen Sarafraz

Research Associate

School of Mechanical Engineering

Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences

A resourceful, motivated chemical and process engineer with more than 10 years of experience (1-year Australian work experience and 9 years overseas) in research centres and industrial sectors specializing the design, operation and analysis of the various chemical and mechanical processes. I have a strong background on design and running experiments, statistical and quality assessments, data collecting, post-processing and design optimisation. Familiar with safe operation and operating procedures with a great passion to face world-class engineering problem and real-case challenges.
