Microstructure and Mechanisms
Vahid is currently working at the Department of Materials and Mechanical Engineering and he is leading the ’’microstructure and mechanisms’’ group focusing on the development and characterization of advanced steels. He finished his PhD at the same department in 2019. During his PhD, he was working on developing new steel intended to be used for the slurry transportation pipeline system.
His PhD has been made within the European Industrial Doctorate (EID) project called Mathematics and Materials Science for Steel Production and Manufacturing under the Innovative Training Networks (ITN) and Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions programme. During his PhD, Vahid was also working for about two years as a visiting researcher in different companies, EFD Induction (Norway), SSAB (Finland), and Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (Germany). Before starting his PhD, he was working as head of the R&D unit in Isfahan casting industries (ICI) for 6 years focusing mainly on developing new alloys for the mining and cement industry. During that time, the R&D unit was awarded twice as the best national R&D unit.
