Masoud Mozafari earned his PhD degree with honors on Biomedical Engineering-Biomaterials from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), 2013. He then joined Oklahoma State University and Pennsylvania State University as a research associate and research visiting scholar, respectively. His research interests involve the understanding of whole field of tissue engineering, nanotechnology and biomaterials with respect to biological interactions, and also delivery systems for potentially useful stem cell and genetic purposes.He is known for the development of strategies for the treatment of damaged tissues/organs and controlling biological substances for target delivery into the human body. He has published extensively in the area of biomedical engineering, and as of June 2018, he has been cited more than 2700 times and has an h-index of 30. Furthermore, some of his publications earned him the honor of being included among the “Top 25 Hottest Articles”, and featured as “The most downloaded articles” and "The most cited articles" from SciVerse ScienceDirect. He has received several awards including “Top 10 National Outstanding Scientific Authors” (2012). He is also one of the recipients of the Julia Polak European Doctorate Award for outstanding translational research contributions to the field of biomaterials from The European Society for Biomaterials. He is currently an assistant professor and head of “Bioengineering Research Group” in Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials Department, Materials and Energy Research Center (MERC). He is also an adjunct assistant professor in Cellular and Molecular Research Center, and Department of Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine, Faculty of Advanced Technologies in Medicine, Iran University of Medical Sciences.
Dr. Nikhare joined the Penn State Behrend faculty in August 2012. Prior to joining the faculty, he worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Mechanical Engineering Department at University of New Hampshire. To date, he has performed different aspects of numerical and analytical modeling for material undergoing mechanical processes. He learned constitutive modeling of mild steel and advanced high strength steels and microstructural modeling during his graduate and post-graduate studies. His research interest are, but not limited to, experiments and numerical simulation of sheet metal and bulk forming in various deformation mode, fatigue and fracture, hydroforming and analytical modeling of material mechanics and processes.
