Dr Seyedin is currently a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Chemical Engineering at Newcastle University (UK). His multidisciplinary research aims to generate fundamental insights into the nanoscale properties of emerging functional materials such as two-dimensional (2D) materials and to develop novel processing and fabrication methods to transform those materials into multi-functional structures and devices for flexible and wearable energy storage and sensing systems. Prior to his role at Newcastle, Dr Seyedin worked at the Molecular Sciences Research Hub, Imperial College London (UK), as a Research Associate. He was awarded a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Wollongong (Australia) in 2014. His PhD research led to the discovery of a new generation of electrically conducting and stretchable fibres that could be comfortably worn to track movements of human body. Following the completion of his PhD, he joined the Institute for Frontier Materials, Deakin University (Australia), as an Associate Research Fellow. In 2017, he was awarded the Alfred Deakin Postdoctoral Research Fellowship, which supported his research for two years. He then received the Endeavour Research Fellowship (Australian Government) and moved to the USA in 2018 to work at the A.J. Drexel Nanomaterials Institute, Drexel University for six months. His research made pioneering advances in processing a new family of 2D materials called MXenes into neat, hybrid, and composite macroscopic structures such as films, fibres, yarns, and textiles that could store energy or sense strain, pressure, or touch. He is a member of Royal Society of Chemistry and serves as editorial board member of two MDPI journals (C – Journal of Carbon Research and Textiles).

Mr Patryk Wojciak

    My research interests lay in energy materials, more specifically how energy of one form (sound) may be transformed into another (electricity) and how 2D materials in the form of films and fibres can be utilised as an alternative to existing, exhaustive energy forms within flexible, wearable electronic devices.
