ARC Research Fellow, Intelligent Polymer Research Institute, ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science, University of Wollongong, Australia
B.Sc. & M. SC. Science in Engineering, (Fibre science and Textile Chemistry) at the Isfahan University of Technology, Iran.
PhD: Materials Engineering from University of Wollongong, NSW, Australia.
My research interests include Nanomaterials, Electromechanical actuators (“artificial muscles”) using inherently conducting polymers and / or carbon Nanotube, bionics and novel fibres spinning and the use of these in the development of smart materials.
- Design and fabrication of tissue engineering scaffolds with complex 3D architectures and customized chemistry that mimic the in vivo tissue environment,
- Developing novel torsional carbon nanotubes yarn actuators for artificial muscles
- Fuel –powered artificial muscle actuators, Novel fibres spinning, Bionics, Electronic textiles
