Mohammad (Mim) Rahimi obtained a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Penn State University, working primarily with Professor Bruce Logan and also with Professor Christopher Gorski and Professor Michael Hickner in Materials Science. Mim’s graduate research has generally been in the area of electrochemical energy conversion and storage. His specific dissertation research focused on converting low-grade waste heat to electricity, using a thermally regenerative ammonia battery. He has also collaborated on a number of projects with other researchers focusing on developing capacitive mixing and reverse electrodialysis approaches, to harvest energy from salinity gradient energy sources. Mim’s researches have been published in several journals including Energy & Environmental Science, ChemSusChem (3 papers), Journal of Power Sources (3 papers), Environmental Science & Technology, Journal of Hazardous Materials, Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research, and The Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering.
