I received my bachelor in materials engineering with a minor specialty in industrial metallurgy at the University of Tabriz, Iran. Thereupon, I started my first M.Sc. degree of materials engineering with a minor specialty in corrosion and protection of materials at Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), Tehran, Iran. Due to my extensive interest in the field of materials with environmentally friendly applications, I decided to pursue a second M.Sc. degree in materials science and nanoengineering at Sabanci University, Istanbul, Turkey. I carried out my research with the projects including corrosion management, environmentally friendly conversion coatings, cathode fabrication for the Lithium ion batteries and photocatalytic deposition of metallic nano-particles. In my PhD project, I am mostly focused on in-situ study of micro- and nanoscale corrosion phenomena of electronic devices by local electrochemical techniques. Studying the localized electrochemical reactions in micro/nano scale, elucidating in-situ the corrosion mechanisms, comprehensive knowledge of electrochemical local techniques can be achieved as the result of the project.
