My name is Alireza Pourghaderi and I was born in Shiraz, Iran, in 1997. In 2019, I earned my bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology. My B.S. thesis focused mainly on nanomaterials and their environmental applications. I used nanomaterials such as MOFs and Nanodiamond in wastewater treatment applications such as dye adsorption and heavy metal removal. To pursue my academic education, I enrolled in the chemical and biomolecular engineering Ph.D. program at the University of California, Berkeley. Currently, I'm continuing my research on nanomaterials and my study focuses on metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and their electrical and chemical sensing applications.

Research interests: 

 Nanomaterials, metal-organic frameworks(MOFs), Electrical and chemical gas sensing, Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.
