This is Hossein. I did my Masters in chemical engineering at Miami University, Oxford, OH. As my master thesis research, I was working on development of a new method to study the absorption capacity of the paper towels. This work has recently published on TAPPI journal (April 2021 issue). It's available through following link: TAPPI Paper

My PhD projects have focus on chemical recycling of the plastic wastes, specifically PET. PET is mainly used in packaging and textile industries. The aim in my projects is to optimize the reaction conditions to recycle PET wastes.

What I've learned to do is to design experiments (DOE), gather/analyze data, prepare reports as well as write scientific papers for publications. I've knowledge on materials science and catalysis. I know how to make polymers, co-polymers, composites, and catalysts for plastic recycling. I also know how to use characterization techniques including TGA, DSC, FTIR, SEM/TEM, NMR, and UV-VIS.

During my free time, I play guitar and sing. You can check my Instagram Profile for some of my works.  

I'm on my last year of studies as a PhD student, and I'm looking to get connected with the people in industry. I would be glad and honored if I could learn from their experiences as well as their helps so that I can find an industrial position. This will give me this opportunity to use my skills and what I know in chemistry and sustainability to solve real challenges.
