  • Scientific Associate - Researcher

    Heinrich Heine Universität, Düsseldorf, Germany, 01/2017 - 07/2020

    Since 2017 I'm working in the group of Prof. Dr. Jürgen Horbach at HHU as a Ph.D. student. Our focus during this time has been studying the rheology of Bulk Metallic Glasses (BMG). This has been done by performing extensive Molecular Dynamics computer simulations and analyzing simulation data via Fortran, C++, and Python. In this project, we have studied the effect of deformation on mechanical properties of BMG (by means of elastic constants), and also we identified these effects on vibrational modes of the system and the Boson peak. We also extensively studied the formation and evolution of shear bands in the system. Besides, managing different parallel projects to deliver the desired results at the matching point, supervising undergraduates students for several lectures as a tutor, collaborating with other theoretical and experimental groups from other academies and preparing paper materials for peer-reviewed journals and conferences presentations were also part of my responsibilities.

    Main responsibilities:

    Project management, Data analysis, Programming, Problem-solving, Presentation, Supervision.

  • Research assistant

    Heinrich Heine Universität - 10/2014 - 12/2016

I implemented Molecular Dynamics simulations using C++ in order to study the stress formation and relaxation in BMG subjected to shear deformation. This work was then part of my master thesis. Preparing lecture materials and grading student assignments were also part of my responsibilities.

    Main responsibilities:

    Project management, Programming, Data analysis, Problem-solving.
