Mohammad (Jeff) received his B.Sc degree in electrical engineering from University of Tehran,Tehran, Iran in July 2009. He got his master's degree from Oklahoma State University -Tulsa in 2011. The focus of his thesis was on design and fabrication of uncooled thermoelectric infrared detectors. In 2014, Mohammad moved to University of Central Florida along with his advisor to complete his PhD. Currently, he is working on fabrication of uncooled thermoelectric infrared detectors, characterizing nano-structures, setting up experiments, etc. If you would like to know more about his research click here.IMAG1125
