Mohammad Rafati Ph.D.
Mohammad (Moh) Rafati Ph.D. is a test Engineer and supervisor of Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) testing team that conducts performance tests at simulated indoor and outdoor air conditions by CORE in-house test facility. Mohammad helps research and development (R&D) team at CORE in planning, execution, and reporting of ERV performance tests according to standards such as ASHRAE 84 and AHRI 1060, as well as improvement of capabilities of the station, design, and control of test equipment.
Mohammad joined CORE in 2016, however his involvement with CORE goes back to 2013 (when he was a PhD student in Mechanical Engineering) through a collaborative research between dPoint and the University of Saskatchewan. He worked on heat/energy recovery ventilators (HRV/ERV) with the focus on frosting in air-to-air membrane-based energy exchangers which resulted in more than 5 journal papers, and international conference presentations. He received several awards for his research on ERV/HRV including Grant-In-Aid Award from the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and SNEBRN (NSERC Smart Net-zero Energy Building Research Network in Canada) best poster presentation Award.
