Fereshteh has a Master’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering, with a focus on ceramic materials. In her Masters, she looked at the self-assembly of surfactants and its use for synthesizing mesoporous Tin dioxide. After graduation, she worked as a Research Assistant to investigate the structural, magnetic, and photocatalytic properties of doped Zinc and Bismuth Ferrites. Now, she is a PhD student in the School of Biomedical Engineering, co-supervised with Dr. Didar and Dr. Hosseinidoust. In her PhD, she is focused on developing a high throughput phage-based bioassay for diagnostics and screening purposes.
