Farid Saeidi

Was born in Tabriz (Iran) in 1986. Graduated from Mechanical Engineering bachelor program of Azad University-Tabriz branch in 2009. He pursued his graduate studies in Mechanical engineering department of Middle East Technical University (Turkey) and received his master degree in 2013. He worked on numerical simulation and fracture analysis of advanced composites. Currently he is pursuing his Ph.D. in Aerospace Department of Middle East Technical University under supervision of Dr. Aslan and working in CSE-Lab as a research assistant since 2015. His current research is mainly focused on numerical modelling of Thermal Barrier Coatings for turbine blades in gas turbines.
