Dr Mahdi Hamidi

Research Associate

Mahdi received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from University of Toronto in 2019. 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 and foams for emerging application. Before joining the NanoManufacturing group, he studied nanomechanics of polymer single crystals and 2D materials as a postdoctoral fellow at UC-Berkeley and University of Toronto (cross-appointment). His current research at University of Cambridge is focused on the development of the well-defined 3D nanomaterial architectures using advanced lithography and Roll-to-Roll methods for applications in energy storage devices, sensors, and actuators. In particular, he has developed the CNT forests grown on the lithographically developed patterns and used them as the 3D structural backbones to provide electron transport and hybridised them with redox active materials to dynamically actuate 3D microstructures by exploiting electrochemically driven reactions.
