Mohammad Arjmand is an assistant professor, a Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Advanced Materials and Polymer Engineering, and the Lead of the Plastic Recycling Research Cluster at UBC Okanagan. He received his PhD from the University of Calgary with a focus on electrical conductivity, electromagnetic interference shielding and dielectric properties of multi-walled carbon nanotube / polymer nanocomposites.

Dr. Arjmand’s core research is as follows:

  • Polymer Processing, Forming, and Characterization
  • Multifunctional Polymer Nanocomposites with a Wide Range of Properties, i.e., Electrical, Electromagnetic Shielding, Dielectric, Gas Sensing, Thermal, Mechanical, Rheological, Barrier, and Tribological.
  • Conductive and Magnetic Nanomaterials Synthesis (Graphene, Graphene Quantum Dots, Graphene Nanoribbon, Carbon Nanotube, Metallic Nanowires and Metallic Nanoparticles)
  • 3D Printing of Polymer Nanocomposites
  • Sensors
  • Plastic Recycling and Circular Economy
