Ebrahim (Amin) Kolahdouz, Ph.D.

Associate Research Scientist, Developmental Dynamics, CCB, Flatiron Institute

Amin joined the Flatiron Insitute as Associate Research Scientist in the Developmental Dynamics group. His research focuses on multiphysics and multiscale modeling of biophysical systems to understand and predict underlying mechanobiological processes. Prior to that, Amin held dual positions as Post-Doctoral Associate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and as Visiting Scientist at the US Food and Drug Administration. During his postdoc, Amin’s main focus was in developing validated computational frameworks for large-scale predictive modeling of physiological systems, including modeling fluid-structure interaction of cardiovascular flow and cellular mechanics, with special emphasis on medical devices and practical clinical applications. Amin received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from University at Buffalo where he developed numerical modeling to study electrohydrodynamics of three-dimensional lipid bilayer vesicles.
