Maryam Momeni, Lead Specialist, Fluid Mechanics
Who am I
After both a bachelor and a master in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Mazandaran in Iran, I continued as a lecturer within Fluid Mechanics. In 2009, I started my Ph.D. before joining Grundfos in 2013 as a Development Engineer. This led on a to a job role as a Senior Development Engineer before entering my current role as a Lead Fluid Mechanics Specialist.
I want my job to be meaningful, and by working in the water treatment area, we try to bring clean and safe water to people all over the world.
How I make a difference
With a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, I love solving problems and discovering new ways. Having mostly been involved with water treatment technology, I keep challenging myself by continuously taking part in solving the world’s water challenges. As a lead specialist, I am leading different research projects and creating the foundation of new technologies and capabilities. I also play a key role in our simulation driven development strategy and try to bring state-of-the-art knowledge to our team. However, I have not entirely left the academic world, as I take pride in collaborating with students at universities on different projects. Not only do they bring new ideas and useful knowledge to our work, but there is always a guarantee for a great, dynamic collaboration.
I am an energetic and communicative person, and the one thing I like the most in my job is that the environment supports and enhances these qualities. And then I really appreciate the collaborative culture among colleagues. We help each other and share knowledge, and I learn something new every single day. Grundfos creates a friendly environment, where we can help each other develop both personally and technically. I love all the different conversations with colleagues and value the good and constructive feedback given during the day. And with colleagues all over the world, there is never a dull moment. These interactions are what motivates me to come to work every day.
I watch an episode of Friends before I go to bed to wash away all the pressure of the day.
