About me


1. About me

My name is Atefeh Khorsand Kheirabad, originally from Iran. I have received my bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, Iran and my master degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Sabanci University, Istanbul, Turkey. Afterward since September 2018, I have started my PhD studies at Materials Chemistry division of Materials and Environmental department at Stockholm University.

 2. Research

In general, My PhD thesis is related to functionalization of porous poly(ionic liquid)-based membranes with various applications such as catalysis, separation.

 3. On-going projects

I started my PhD research by learning the synthesis of different poly(ionic liquid)s beginning from monomer synthesis through ionic exchange process of polymers. Currently I am working on fabrication process of PIL-based membranes to decorate membranes with specific properties. My PhD project is funded by ERC grant.
