Brief Bio

Sasan Nouranian is an Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering in the School of Engineering at the University of Mississippi. He received his Ph.D. in 2011 from the Dave C. Swalm School of Chemical Engineering at Mississippi State University. He also holds Master's and Bachelor's degrees in Polymer Engineering. His research interests are primarily in the area of materials science and engineering with specialization in polymers and polymer composites. Focus areas include design and characterization of polymer nanocomposites and smart multifunctional materials and computational studies of lower length scale material phenomena, especially interfaces in hybrid materials. In recent years, he has focused on the characterization of interphase in thermoset polymer nanocomposites through molecular dynamics simulation as well as mechanical characterization of these materials. He has published in Carbon, Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, and Journal of Composite Materials and served as Chair for the Composites Division of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE).
