Contact:Phone: 310.338.7369 Email: mahsa.ebrahim@lmu.edu Office: Doolan 207 Mahsa Ebrahim is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA. She teaches undergraduate courses in Thermal-Fluid Science and performs both experimental and numerical research in electronic cooling, spray cooling, droplet impingement, multi-phase flows, interfacial flows and phase interactions. Dr. Ebrahim received her B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from K.N.Toosi University of Technology in 2009. She earned her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Villanova University in 2017. She joined the LMU community in 2018 as an Assistant Professor and her goal is to train Mechanical Engineers who are creative and reliable designers as well as independent learners and researchers.
