Dr. Shiva Gorjian is currently an assistant professor of biosystems engineering at Tarbiat Modares University. She received her PhD in biosystems engineering, a branch of Renewable Energy Technologies, from TMU in 2014. After finishing her PhD, she began her career as an expert in the field of solar energy technologies, particularly their applications in agriculture, at the Renewable Energy Research Institute of TMU, which continued two years. She has also completed a postdoctoral fellowship in cooperation with the TMU's Renewable Energy Research Institute under the guidance of Dr. Barat Ghobadian on solar energy technologies, focusing on the applications of these technologies in agriculture, especially desalination of saline water. She is also a referee in the Iran National Science Foundation, Vice Presidency for Science and Technology. Her fields of interest include solar desalination technologies, hybrid PVT systems, renewable-based power generation systems, energy and exergy analysis, and modeling and simulation of energy systems. She has more than 50 articles in prestigious national and international journals and collaborates with more than 10 domestic and foreign journals as a judge. She is currently working on a joint international project with India on water treatment systems using solar energy.
The journal "Sustainable Energy Technologies and Assessments" encourages papers on any aspect and scale of technologies for energy generation and/or utilization that decrease the impact of that production and use, from the laboratory to commercial applications. Papers on technology development/improvement, integration, regulation, standards and policy are within the scope of the journal, as well as case studies. It is a peer-reviewed scientific journal, the scope of Sustainable Energy Technologies and Assessments covers Energy Engineering and Power Technology (Q1), Renewable Energy, Sustainability and the Environment (Q1). The Journal Impact 2019-2020 of Sustainable Energy Technologies and Assessments is 3.860, which is just updated in 2020.
