Mehran Amiri

I am from Kermanshah, Iran. I got my undergrad degree in applied chemistry. Much enthusiasm in synthesis and structure determination led me to pursue my master's degree in inorganic chemistry at The University of Kurdistan, Iran. To earn some experience in the industry, I worked in Liquorice Company as a quality control manager for the next two years. After that, I got a position at the University of Kurdistan as a lab technician and chemistry instructor, where I learned how to work and maintain the SAXS instrument. All of my previous experience led me to pursue my Ph.D. at Oregon State University under Dr. May Nyman's supervision. Here I listed some of my research projects and responsibilities at Nyman group;

 Research project:

  • Develop and perform novel synthesis of metal oxides solution, crystallization, and structure determination with X-ray techniques. In my research, Cr, Mn, Fe, Zn, Ti, Nb, W, and Bi are the most (not limited to) used metal ions.
  • Lead the Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) projects, structure determination with SCXRD, PXRD, TGA, UV-Vis, and application in hydrogen production from water splitting under the UV-Vis light;
  • Investigate and monitor the interaction between molecules in reaction solution to determine the reaction pathways via X-ray scattering (SAXS and PDF) and Mass spectroscopy (ESI-MS).

Instrument Technician:

  • Maintain two Small Angle X-ray Scattering instruments (SAXSess and SAXSpace).
  • Train students and other users on operating and analyzing SAXS data for various samples.
  • Train the operation and analyzing data of ESI-MS and Electro-Chemistry equipment.
  • Collect single-crystal data on samples from my colleagues and myself; solve, refine, and deposit structures in Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC).
