Erfan received his Ph.D. from Oregon State University in Mechanical Engineering- Thermal and Fluid Mechanics. He continued his research on microscale flow and heat transfer enhancement for energy efficient applications while holding a Postdoctoral Scholar position at UC Davis. Erfan led the construction of the Solar/Supercritical CO2 Thermal Energy Enhancement Laboratory (STEEL), a facility which has been established for experimental characterization of heat exchangers and solar thermal receivers working with high pressure and high temperature fluids.

Erfan’s current projects are related to designing, fabrication and characterization of compact and efficient heat exchangers with applications in waste heat recovery and concentrated solar power plants.
