Materials Engineering 2 (2021-University of Turku)


I graduated from the Amirkabir University of Technology in Iran with a master’s degree in Materials Engineering. I worked with metal composites and open-cell metal foams for my M.Sc. and B.Sc. thesis. I have started my Ph.D. studies in December 2019 at Aalto University. Upon the foundation of the Faculty of Technology at the University of Turku, our research group was transferred to this university. Currently, I am working on redox flow batteries for large-scale energy storage based on bio-inspired organic molecules for my Ph.D. project under professor Pekka Peljo’s supervision.
