Doctor Maryam Bayati PhD, MRSC


Summary

Dr. Maryam Bayati joined the Department of Engineering and Mathematics, Sheffield Hallam University, as a lecturer in October 2018. Her areas of expertise include nano-materials, electrocatalysis, low-temperature energy storage and conversion systems and sensors. 

About

Dr. Maryam Bayati was awarded a PhD from the University of Liverpool, under the supervision of Professor David Schiffrin. Her thesis was entitled Electrocatalysis by Nanomaterial in Low-temperature Fuel Cell. She received her MSc (Distinction) and BSc (Distinction) from Sharif University of Technology and University of Tehran respectively as the best student of the year in her disciplines.

As a winner of a national competition, she received a full time scholarship toward PhD. She has published in several high-impact factor international journals as a first and corresponding author. She filed a patent application in collaboration with AFC Energy Company. Her research results were delivered at 27 national and international conferences including invited and keynote talks in France, Germany, Spain, China and Japan.

Over more than 15 years of experience working on different fields of Chemistry and Materials Science and Engineering, she has successfully participated into completion of two EPSRC, two FP7 (the seventh framework programme for research and technological development) and two Innovate UK projects.
