 Mona Khafajy


I was born in Tehran, Iran. I received my B.Sc. degree in chemistry and M.Sc. degree in analytical chemistry, electrochemical sensors from Sharif University of Technology in 2007 and 2010, respectively. Currently, I am with the institute of nanoscience and nanotechnology, Sharif University, as a PhD candidate. My research is focused on usage of nanoparticles as drugs, and drug carriers in cancer therapy. The project is in collaboration with the institute of nanoscience and department of chemistry, Sharif University, and department of pharmacy, university of Tehran. Prof. M. Vosoughi, Dr. M. Hormozinezhad and Prof. R. Dinarvand will be supervising the work.

Nafiseh Fahimi-Kashani



Nafiseh was born and raised in Tehran, Iran. She received B.Sc. degree in applied chemistry from K. N. Toosi University of Tech. in 2011. Her undergraduate research project was about QSPR study of Chlorodibenzofurans (CDFs) under supervision of Dr. J. Ghasemi. As she like spectroscopy and also is interested in Nanochemistry, she joined Dr. M. R. Hormozi-Nezhad research group, and received M.Sc. degree in Analytical chemistry under supervision of him in 2013. Her project was about " Colorimetric sensing of nitrite and glutathione based on morphological changes of high aspect ratio Gold nanorods". Now her PhD program, under supervision of Dr. Hormozi-Nezhad is focusing on “Optical Sensor Arrays Based on Nanostructured Materials for Quantitative Detection and Qualitative Discrimination of Biomolecules”. Beside her scientific life she likes bicycle riding and jewelry handicrafts making.

Maryam Shahrajabian


I am from Isfahan, Iran. I started my undergraduate studies in 2007 in the Chemistry Department, Isfahan University of Technology (IUT) and graduated in 2011. I continued my research in M.Sc. there in the area of microextraction systems under supervision of Dr. Saraji. As I am deeply interested in Spectroscopic techniques and Nano-technology, I joined the group of Dr. Hormozi-Nezhad as a Ph.D. student in 2013. I am so glad to get experience and develop my knowledge and ideas in this group.

Somayeh Jafarinejad


She was born in Tehran, Iran in spring of 1981. She got her B.sc degree in medical laboratory science in 2004 from Kashan University of medical science. She accepted at Tehran University of medical science in 2006 and started working on inhalation drug delivery as her thesis. Also she has done some projects about in-vitro toxicity of nanoparticles. She obtained her M.sc in medical nanotechnology in 2009. She worked in research center of Iranian Blood Transfusion Organization (IBTO) in 2011 till 2012 and then accepted in 2012 as a PhD candidate at Shahid Beheshti University of medical science. Currently her research is focused on designing a biosensors array based on quantum dots and enzyme for detection of biomolecules under Dr. Hormozi-Nezhad supervision.

Mohammad Amin Farahmand-Nejad 


My name is Mohammad Amin Farahmand-Nejad. I obtained my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degree from Chamran university of Ahvaz and Lorestan university in 2008 and 2011 respectively. My M.Sc. thesis was focused on “UV-Vis spectroscopic study of interaction between Platinum, Nickel and Cobalt ions with hyper branched polycitric acid grafted carbon nanotube”. I joined Dr. Hormozi-Nezhad research group in 2014 as PhD student. My thesis is involved on using various metallic and nonmetallic nanostructures e.g. Au & Ag nanoparticles, Au & Ag nanoclusters and Carbon nanodots as sensor element for detection and classification of various analytes based on colorimetric and fluorimetric sensor array. 

Samira Abbasi Moayyed


I was born in Tehran, Iran in 1990. I obtained my B.Sc degree in Applied chemistry from Kharazmi University in 2012. I've joined Dr. Hormozi-Nezhad's group since 2012. I received my M.Sc. degree in Analytical chemistry under supervision of him in 2014 with an entitled "Spectrophotometric Determination Based on Changing the Surface Plasmon Resonance Band of Au Nanoparticles". In 2015, I was accepted as a PhD candidate at Sharif University. I'm so glad that I can continue my research in his group and develop my knowledge.
