Amir Ashrafizadeh

Mechanical Engineer

Amir is a mechanical engineer, specializing in both fluid mechanics and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). With both a B.Sc. (Isfahan University of Technology, Iran) and a Master’s degree (University of Waterloo), he’s been designing, building and flying model aircraft since he was 18.
It’s a passion that has become a career. After graduating from Waterloo in 2014, Amir began working as an aerospace engineer at PrecisionHawk – back when it was just starting out. He was one of the very first members of the company, and helped develop the product during its initial crucial phase.
Amir began at SkyX as a UAV builder but is moving to a systems engineer role. He still works on his own UAV projects in his spare time (when he’s not busy enjoying life with his wife and son).
