About the Author
Reza Taherian is an Assistant Professor in Materials in the Department of Mechanic Engineering at Shahrood University, Iran. His experience includes Manufacturing polymer based composites, developing a high accuracy apparatus for determining the electrical conductivity in polymer based composites and semiconductors, manufacturing polymer/carbon composites for different layers of PEM fuel cells, and modelling of electrical conductivity in composites. Ayesha Kausar is currently serving School of Natural Sciences, National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Islamabad, Pakistan. She has previously worked with National Centre for Physics, Islamabad, Pakistan and Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad, Pakistan. She obtained her PhD from Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad, Pakistan/KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology), Graduate School of EEWS, Daejeon, Republic of Korea. She also gained her Maters and M.Phil education from Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad, Pakistan. Her current research interests include design, fabrication, characterization, and exploration of structure-property relationship and potential prospects of nanocomposite, polymeric nanocomposite, polymeric composite, and hybrid materials. Nanocomposite and hybrid materials having electrical conductivity behavior, flame retardancy, proton conductivity for PEMFCs, Li-ion electrode properties; photovoltaic features, water treatment potential, corrosion protection, biomedical, and aerospace relevance, etc. are among her notable research interests.
