Research interests include:
Matin joined the Institute of Railway Research (IRR) as a Senior Research Fellow in October 2016. He is an expert in rolling contact mechanics with wide ranging knowledge of related damage mechanisms such as wear and rolling contact fatigue (RCF).
He received his PhD from KTH Royal Institute of technology in Sweden with his thesis titled: “On Efficient Modelling of Wheel-Rail Contact in Vehicle Dynamics Simulation”.
He has developed a novel wheel-rail contact model suitable to be used within vehicle dynamics packages for damage predictions. His publication of the model has attracted interests from the scientific community.
Matin has been working within the railway industry in Sweden and he has been involved in various collaborations with researchers from around the world.
