Ehssan H. Koupaie
Before joining Queen’s University, Dr. Ehssan Koupaie was an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry at the University of Toronto. He has been also affiliated with BioZone, The Centre for Applied Bioscience & Bioengineering Research and The Pulp & Paper Centre at the University of Toronto as well as The Bioreactor Technology Group at the University of British Columbia. Dr. Koupaie received his Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of British Columbia, Canada, in 2017. During his Ph.D., he collaborated with an interdisciplinary team of researchers from environmental engineering, electrical engineering, and physics disciplines; a collaboration that led to the development of a novel energy-efficient radio frequency (RF) thermal hydrolysis technology for enhanced bioenergy recovery from municipal biosolids.
Ehssan is a co-applicant on the NFRF-Exploration Project.
