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.
Work with a purpose
To me, Grundfos is much more than a pump manufacturer. In Grundfos, focus is on people. People are taken care of and invested in, both employees and those in need. 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. And it inspires me to know that I make a real difference by developing pump solutions that deliver clean drinking water. I am really proud to take part of this.
I watch an episode of Friends before I go to bed to wash away all the pressure of the day.
