About

Omid Dorostkar

I am a (sponsored) Postdoc at University of Oxford (sponsored by University of Oxford and supported by Swiss National Science Foundation) and a Postdoc/Lecturer at ETH Zürich. I study geophysical flows using soft (condensed) matter physics and, in particular, friction and fluid-solid interactions in granular/porous materials. I am also interested in developing predictive models using Artificial Intelligence (Deep/Machine Learning) for understanding the hydro-mechanical behavior of soft (condensed) matter in geophysical flows. My background is in civil engineering, with a specialization in geomechanics from the interdisciplinary perspectives of engineering, geophysics and physics. I earned my PhD from ETH Zürich (2018), my MSc from University of Tehran (2014) and my BSc from Isfahan University of Technology (2012).
