Amir Taghavy joined the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering as an Assistant Professor in September 2015. A civil engineer by training and an environmental hydrogeologist, Amir received his PhD in the Environmental Water Resources Engineering from Tufts University (Medford, MA) in 2013 where he built his research profile as a modeler in the field of flow and reactive transport in porous media, with focus on the fate and transport of nanoparticles in aquatic-terrestrial systems. He then joined the Center for Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin as a postdoctoral research fellow. His postdoctoral research centered on the upscaling of nanotechnology-based solutions for subsurface engineering problems including the enhanced oil recovery and CO2 flood conformance. During his first semester as a faculty member here at UMass, he taught a course on Probability and Statistics to senior/graduate-level engineering students.
