I am a graduate student at University of California, Davis, in Department of Textiles & clothing. I got my Master in Science from Isfahan University of Technology , Iran in Fiber Science from Textile Engineering Department in Feb.1999 and joined the Textile Engineering Department at Yazd University in Sep.1999 as a lecturer and left there in Sep.2003. Also, I have received my B.Sc.  from Isfahan University of Technology, Iran in Fiber Science from Textile Engineering Department in 1996.

I have joined Professor Gang Sun’s group Jan.2004 and from then have started my Ph.D. research on possibility of integration of melt-spinning and reactive extrusion for common fiber-forming polymers.. I have been involved in several short and long research projects so far including:

  • Lab-scale synthesis and production of polyaramid fibers
  • Polyblending of polypropylene and polyamide6 or polyethylene terephthalate in industrial scale to improve dyeability of polypropylene fibers
  • Possibility of recyclability of polyethylene terephthalate soda bottles
  • Pilling control of Cellulosic blend fabrics through caustification process
