Dr Mahdi Hamidi
Mahdi received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from University of Toronto in 2019. Before joining the NanoManufacturing group, he studied nanomechanics behavior of nanostructured polymer films (single crystals) and emerging 2D materials as a postdoctoral research fellow at UC-Berkeley and University of Toronto (cross-appointment). His PhD work focused on fundamental understanding of structure-property relationships and new manufacturing routes to microscopically engineer the structures and properties of polymer nanocomposites for emerging application. His current research is focused on the development of the well-defined 3D nanomaterial architectures using advanced lithography methods for applications in energy storage devices, sensors.
