About Me

I am currently a post-doctoral fellow at School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. I obtained my PhD in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering from University of Manitoba, Canada and my M.Sc. and B.Sc. degrees in Mechanical engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, Iran.

My Expertise

  • Scalable manufacturing of lightweight hybrid composites: Integrating nanotechnology in industrial sheet molding compound (SMC) manufacturing method.
  • Scalable manufacturing of novel composites: Carbon fiber-reinforced polymer prepreg trim waste, basalt fibers in SMC manufacturing.
  • Nanotechnology: Cellulose nanomaterials, graphite nanoplatelets, nanocomposites synthesis and sintering (in-situ polymerization, melt compounding, solution compounding), manufacturing and characterizing, processing/manufacturing-structure-property relationship in nanocomposites.
  • Composites manufacturing: Thermosets: sheet molding compound (SMC), autoclave, vacuum assisted resin transfer molding (VARTM); Thermoplastics: injection molding, compression molding, selective laser sintering.
  • Modeling in polymer composites: Variational analysis, continuum damage mechanics, viscoelasticity, FEA.
  • Materials characterization and testing: DSC, DMA, TMA, TGA, viscometry, Xray computational tomography, SEM, micro debonding, single fiber fragmentation, mechanical testing.
