S. H. Ebrahimnazhad Rahbari
I am an Assistant Professor at Korea Institute for Advanced Study. I work on a wide range of topics in statistical physics of far-from equilibrium systems.
I conduct research on various aspects of non-equilibrium statistical physics, particularly yielding transition of dry and wet granular materials, morphology of self-assemblies, (explosive) percolation, and surface growth. To this end, I use a combination of self-developed large scale molecular-dynamics-type simulations and Monte-Carlo schemes. To validate my numerical observations, I use scaling arguments and dimensional analysis.
A brief list of current projects includes:
1) Entropy production in granular materials
2) Mechanisms of negative entropy production in granular flows
3) Symmetric properties of fluctuations in granular flows
4) Dynamics of granular particles with internal degrees of freedom
5) Explosive percolation and surface growth
