About me :

Ehsan Mohtarami is currently employed by IPON Corp. as a Technical Specialist in Tehran, Iran.

He was a Ph.D. student in the Department of Rock Mechanics Engineering at the Isfahan University of Technology before graduating with a Ph.D. in rock mechanics engineering in July 2017. He was a member of the high performance computing Lab. where he worked with Dr. Alireza Baghbanan and Dr. Hamid Hashemolhosseini. His research involved modeling quasi-static crack growth in anisotropic inhomogeneous materials under the Thermo-Chemo-Hydro-Mechanical (TCHM) coupling using the extended finite element method (XFEM).

He graduated with a M.S. in Rock Mechanics Engineering from the Tehran University in September 2012 under supervision of Dr. Ahmad Jafari and Dr. Mehdi Amini.

He graduated with a B.S. in Mining Engineering with honors from the Shahrood University of Technology in June 2009 under supervision of Dr. Ahmad Ramezanzadeh.

He also graduated with a B.S. in IT Engineering in Islamic Azad University E-Campus in 2017.
