Omri is a PhD candidate in the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department at the University of Toronto, Canada. His research is focused in using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling methodologies to accurately model and optimize thermal management systems for future electric vehicle technology. This work is a multidisciplinary collaboration effort between several university departments namely; Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, and U of T Institute for Aerospace Studies as well as the University of Toronto Electric Vehicle Research Centre.
Omri received his Master’s from the University of Toronto, Canada and his Bachelor’s from Cleveland State University, USA in Mechanical Engineering. His previous research work was conducted with regards to CFD modeling of turbulent downstream wakes propagated by large scale wind turbines; and the development of quadrotor drone system for the application of measuring wind data for on and offshore wind farms.
