Discovering the magic formula that makes airplanes fly inspired me to pursue a degree in aerospace engineering at the Amirkabir University of Technology. However, I found advanced materials, particularly composite materials, to be even more captivating. I recall feeling on cloud nine while working on the simulation and analysis of the mechanical properties of graphene-based nanocomposites as part of my thesis research. Seeking a deeper understanding of structural behavior, I enrolled in AUT’s M.Sc. Program in Aerostructures, where I studied fracture mechanics, structural dynamics, and structural stability. During this program, I worked toward tailoring the composite material of an aircraft wing skin for enhanced dynamic aeroelastic stability. In September 2022, I joined CRN as a MASc student under the co-supervision of Dr. Milani and Dr. Arjmand. My research focus is investigating the potential of using recycled polymers as a new feedstock in Fused Deposition Modeling, while also taking the opportunity to explore Kelowna’s hiking trails.
