A Passion For Metal.

Vahid Javaheri

Ph.D. Candidate
Material Science and Engineering


I am Pursuing My Doctoral in the Field of Materials Engineering at the Department of Materials Engineering and Production Technology, University of Oulu, Finland. In fact, I'm working on the Marie-Sklodowska Curie project, WP3, which is an European Industrial Doctoral program. My research is focused on developing a new gradient wear material for slurry transportaion pipeline application.
