I obtained my PhD at UNSW with a thesis entitled, Novel Water Technologies in 2019 after completion of BSc and MSC in Applied chemistry from the University of Tabriz (Iran). I held a lecturer position at Islamic Azad University (Shahrekord, Iran) teaching different units such as General Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Basic Principles & Calculations in Industrial Chemistry. In 2016, I was awarded Postgraduate Research Scholarship at UNSW Canberra. Co-invented 6 PCT applications, internationally examined, and more than 20 published articles in peer-reviewed journals with h-index 7. I was awarded a scholarship to attend Water Innovation Lab in Porto, Portugal in 2017 and was among ACT Water Leaders Finalists in 2019 (Australian Capital Territory, Australia). I’d received $400,000.00 industrial grant to develop new techniques that I co-invented in different areas of Environmental Science/Engineering like Water/Wastewater treatment, Mineral Extraction and Purification, Green based Surfactants and PFAS de-contamination. I was a contributor to technical reports on the development of a new laboratory for PFAS decontamination at UNSW Canberra in 2019, Copper Recovery in Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) for a local mining company in 2021, PFAS removal using biodegradable amino acid-based surfactants for a local company in 2021, New Ion Exchange method and a novel process for its sustainable regeneration for a local mining company in 2022.
