I obtained my BSc and MSc in Chemical Engineering at University of Tehran, followed by two years work as R&D engineer on adsorptive separation processes in Oil and Gas industry. Then I embarked on a scholarship-supported PhD studies at Massey University, where I further focused on adsorption plant design and synthesis and characterization of porous materials, within the MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology. My passion to engage in projects with a focus on renewable energy, sustainable design, and energy efficiency has led me to my next job, where I worked on the development and commercialization of new porous materials for sustainable and energy efficient gas separation applications. All of these prepared me to take my current job as Postdoctoral Research Associate at University of Manchester, where we work on development of adsorption processes for gas separataion systems. It includes both experimental and computational study of adsorption processes.
