Reza has been a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge since late 2019. He has broad experience and track record in chemical and materials process engineering.


His current focus at Cambridge is on designing flow microreactors for the green manufacturing of nanostructured materials using deep eutectic solvents. In particular, by tuning the synthesis conditions, he produces a variety of size- and shape-controlled heterogeneous catalysts. Subsequently, using model catalytic reactions (e.g., CO oxidation) in conjunction with mechanistic microkinetic frameworks, he examines the activity of these materials to establish structure-property relationships.

Expertise: kinetics and thermodynamics, catalytic reactors, crystallisation, nanomaterial synthesis and characterisation, computational modelling.
