Dr. Hosseini obtained B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Polymer Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), Iran (2010, 2013) with published theses focused on rheological properties of polysaccharides (2010) and process and mechanical properties of carbon and graphite foams for polymeric sandwich composites (2013). He obtained his second M.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from University of Missouri-Columbia, US with a thesis focused on anion exchange membranes for aqueous primary batteries (2015) followed by a brief research tenure on hybrid organic-inorganic membranes for CO2 capture (2016). He started his Ph.D. thesis under the guidance of Prof. Reza Barati at University of Kansas, US in 2017 and developed complex fluids and micromodels for subsurface energy and CCUS; and completed his thesis in December 2020. His research interests include development of advanced materials and multiphase flow systems for subsurface energy, CCUS and renewable energies. He continues his research as Postdoctoral Associate under the supervision of Professor Sibani Lisa Biswal at Rice University, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department on development of micromodels, aqueous based electrolytes and foams for environmentally friendly processes and water resources management.
