Reza Samiee has completed his undergraduate education in polymer engineering at Amirkabir university of technology. He has pursued his master under supervision of Dr. Ramezanzadeh and Dr. Mahdavian. The variety of novel works seriously carried out in the institute were aligned with his interests. They have worked on the synthesis approaches and functionalizing of graphene-based materials and also the properties and application of these 2D materials. He defended his thesis with the title of “Hybrid sol-gel based smart coatings for anti-corrosive applications by the incorporation of functionalized graphene oxide nano-sheets”. He also have the chance to cooperate with his supervisors in their following industrial and academic works.
These two years’ courses further fired his enthusiasm for a professional career. He believes that his skills and experiences will allow him to complete a larger scale project like a PhD effectively. After reading the PhD topic and its description in FG website, He found a chance to follow his education which was completely matched with his academic background and interest.
