Dr Rouhollah Ali Jalili is developing nanomaterials with possible industrial applications in 3D printing, fibre spinning, energy storage and conversion.
materials chemistry, nanotechnology, electromaterials
Dr Jalili’s research demonstrates the key role these organic liquid crystals play in making 3D architecture, using industrially-scalable techniques such as wet-spinning, electrospinning, printing (ink-jet and 3D) and coatings.
His work includes the synthesis, characterisation and fabrication of conducting polymers, carbon nanotubes, graphene and other atomically thin 2D materials.
Dr Jalili received his PhD from the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute and Australian Institute of Innovative Materials at the University of Wollongong in 2013, developing scalable processing of electromaterials.
Dr Jalili was awarded a 2017 Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellowship and is based in the School of Science.
