Azadeh Mirabedini holds a Bachelor of Science with majors in polymer engineering and coatings from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic) and a Master of Engineering from Iran Polymer and Petrochemical Institute (IPPI). Azadeh has worked across a number of projects and has held several tutoring positions. Her research interests are in smart hybrid macro/nano structures, conducting polymers and nanomaterials.
Azadeh successfully completed (2012) her Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) under the supervision of Professor Gordon Wallace (Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (IPRI)) and Dr Javad Foroughi from the University of Wollongong. Her doctoral thesis focused on developing biocompatible electroactive multiaxial fibres with great potential to be used as implantable electrodes or power sources within the body media. These fibres were made of a conducting polymer that is intended to act as signal channels and a natural hydrogel which will operate as the channel sheath. During her PhD Azadeh has published more than 10 peer-reviewed publications, including a book Developing Novel Spinning Methods to Fabricate Continuous Multifunctional Fibres for Bioapplications (2018) Springer Link. In 2016/17, Azadeh worked as a postdoctoral research associate at IPRI to develop and analysis electroactive 3D hybrid scaffolds for nerve/muscle regeneration applications. Azadeh is an affiliate investigator of SEAM.
