Overview:

I am doing research on Additive manufacturing (3D Printing) of bioceramics and their applications in Tissue Engineering. I did my PhD at the University of Northampton in the UK and upon graduation I worked at Choc Edge Ltd for 2 years before returning to Iran. I am part of multi-centre research study group developing innovative approaches to printing hard tissue replacement using bioceramics. Our research partner include Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Iran Polymer Institute, and China Wuhan University.
