Mahroo Falah received her Ph.D. in materials Chemistry from the Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, in 2015. She is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Sustainable Cementitious Binders team at the Fiber and Particle Engineering Research Unit at the University of Oulu (Finland) since 2017.
Her research experience is related to the Synthesis and characterization of inorganic Polymers (geopolymers) and oxide nano / micron-sized particles. She is also investigating various industrial wastes and side streams like mine tailings, fly ashes, and slags towards the circular economy.
- Alkali-activated binders
- Utilization of inorganic industrial waste and residues in geopolymer concrete
- Alkali Activation of mine tailing for more sustainable raw materials
- Fibre reinforced concrete
- Synthesis and characterization of Cu2O nanoparticles and Cu2O/TiO2 nano-heterostructures
Pilot tests of alkali-activated materials used as covers of mine tailings at Boliden Kevitsa (Finland)-ITERAMS Project
- Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Fibre and Particle Engineering Research Unit
