Elnaz Naghibi is a Teaching Fellow in Department of Aeronautics, Imperial College London. Prior to joining the department in July 2019, she was a Research Associate and a Teaching Associate in Queen Mary, University of London 2014-2019. She earned her PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Iran, in 2017.

Her research interests lie at developing analytical and semi-analytical solutions to idealized models of engineering and natural systems. Since 2012, she has been studying interactions of ocean dynamics and the Earth's rotation and developing reduced-order models to investigate the sources of dynamical coupling between oceanic currents and the Earth’s polar motion.
