Personal profile


Dr Noushin Nasiri has received her Bachelor and Master of Engineering in Materials Engineering from the University of Tehran in Iran and then pursued her research at the Nanotechnology Research Laboratory of the Australian National University (ANU) where she received her PhD in Nanotechnology, in 2017. In 2017, she took a postdoctoral position at University of Technology Sydney, Faculty of Science where she continued working on nano-structured materials for health and energy application. In September 2018, she joined the School of Engineering at Macquarie University as a Lecturer. She is a passionate science communicator and her research has been recognized with several awards including the First Place in the 2017 AMP Amplify Ignite Competition, the Runner-up Award in the 2016 Famelab Australia Grand Final and the People’s Choice Award for the 2015 ANU 3MT Grand Final.
