Amin Engarnevis is a PhD Student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering working with Dr. Steven Rogak and Dr. Sheldon Green. His research focuses on characterizing the fouling of building heat exchangers by transported airborne particulate matter through a duct system, and on reducing its energy and indoor air quality implications. This is performed by both full-scale experimental investigation and modeling of the air-side fouling for finned tube heat exchangers, as well as assessing the hydraulic and thermal performance degradation and potential biological aerosol deposition and growth that result from fouling.
