Amir Zanj received his B.Sc in 2004 and M.Sc. in 2007 in Mechanical and Aerospace engineering from K.N. Toosi University of technology, Tehran, Iran. During 2004 - 2012, he was involved in national space program at Space System Research Centre (SSRC). In SSRC he performed as space vehicle propulsion system R&D engineer developing complex system dynamic models for Space Flight dynamic investigation and propulsion system design, modification and fault detection. During his time at SSRC His team managed to execute a successful Low Earth to Orbit (LEO) satellite launch. He received his Ph.D. in complex system physics-based modeling from Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia in 2017. His postgraduate study dedicated to develop an integrated modeling framework for Aerothermoelasticity at Advanced Control System Research Group (ACSRG) at Flinders University. His research interests are complex system design and modification, multi-physical dynamics, Bond Graph modeling, aerospace propulsion systems (hydro-control, turbomachinery and combustion) and physical-based numerical methods. He is a recipient of 2012 Australian Postgraduate Award. Dr. Zanj is the originator of Physical Decomposition Method (PDM) and Variable Interface Dynamic Adaptation (VIDA) technique. Currently, he is a professional academic staff and a research associate at Flinders University, Adelaide, Australia. Dr. Zanj has also been a professional member of SmartSat CRC, Win4.0 and AIAA. His new research interests include Integrated Computer Aided Engineering (I-CAE) technique for multidisciplinary systems design and performance optimization, physics-based distributed system modeling, hydroulics valves, smart systems, industrial automation and IoT.
