Mozhdeh Erfanian


My name is Mozhdeh (Pronounced Moj-de), and I am a first-year PhD student in MathSys. My research interests are mathematical modelling of metal forming processes and computational material science.

I am working under the supervision of Dr Ed Brambley (Warwick). Part of the research in Dr Bramley’s research group is dedicated to mathematical modelling of metal forming inspired by the need for sufficiently accurate quick-to-compute models. My project is focused on models of microstructural changes (such as texture) during metal forming, with an initial focus on asymmetric rolling (ASR).
