Ali Abrishamchi, Ph.D.
Ali Abrishamchi holds a bachelors degree in Civil Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, and a masters degree and PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of California at Davis. He joined the faculty of the Department of Civil Engineering at Santa Clara University in September 2013. Dr. Abrishamchi's research interests include computational fluid dynamics, integrated ground and surface water modeling, and hydrodynamic and sediment transport modeling. His research and engineering experiences include work on various topics in water resources such as developing two- and three-dimensional time-dependent computational fluid dynamics models to predict unsteady hydrodynamic forces, developing and applying two-dimensional hydrodynamic and sediment transport models to assess riverine and estuarine hydraulics and habitat potential, modeling highway stormwater runoff pollution wash-off and build up, and integrated ground and surface water modeling.water modeling,.
