Dr Ghodrat is a senior lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at UNSW Canberra. She was a lecturer and prior to that research fellow at Western Sydney University since 2016. Maryam was also a postdoctoral research associate at School of Mechanical Engineering and Product Design, Swinburne University of Technology in 2015 . She completed her P.h.D. in Materials Sciences and Engineering at the Laboratory for Simulation and Modelling for Particulate Systems (SIMPAS), UNSW and received her master of engineering from UNSW .

Maryam is an expert in the field of energy efficiency technologies. Her research focuses on the application of numerical modelling and thermodynamic analysis in developing new processes. She has proven research experience in the field of particle-fluid flow, thermodynamic modelling and aerodynamics analysis of fire-wind interaction. She has developed models mainly include two-fluid model, kinetic theory and VOF. The specific research topics include particle separation, multi-phase flow, thermodynamic modelling of waste to energy systems and aerodynamic investigation of the interaction of wind and fire in bushfire prone areas.
