I am Reza Zamani. I was born in December 1982 in Tehran, Iran. I have a bachelor's degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Sharif University of Technology (Tehran, Iran, 2007), and a master's degree in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology from the University of Barcelona (Spain, 2009). In January 2010, I started my PhD thesis with Prof. Jordi Arbiol in Superconductor Materials Department in ICMAB-CSIC, working in Electron Nanoscopy on Nanostructures for energy applications. I am also directed by Prof. Joan Ramon Morante from Institut de Recerca en Energia de Catalunya (IREC).
