Nikta Attari

MASc Student

EME 1212



I acquired a BSc degree from the University of Tehran and began my career as a petroleum engineer. I remember being over the moon while working on the simulation and analysis of oil and gas mechanical properties, and that was the moment I realized I wanted to pursue a career in academia as a mechanical engineer. I have done some research in optimization and machine learning while introducing myself to a new field of study. In September 2023, I started as a MASc student at CRN, co-supervised by Dr. Milani and Dr. Irani.
