Dr. Shaghayegh Hamzehlou obtained her B.Sc. and M.Sc. in polymer engineering at Amir Kabir University of Technology (Poly Technique of Tehran) on 2003 and 2006, respectively.Later, she worked for 4 years as R&D Engineer in a manufacturing company, working on polymer based insulation materials for high voltage generators. In 2010, she moved to University of Basque country to do the PhD in the framework of a European project, Marie Curie training network ITN NANOPOLY. She spent two secondments during her PhD at Freie University of Berlin and BASF Company (Ludwigshafen, Germany). In 2014, she joined Basque Center for Macromolecular Design and Engineering as a postdoctoral fellow involving in a European project RECOBAH2020- SPIRE-2014 for 3 years. Later she won a competitive proposal-based grant at University of Basque Country where she is currently working as a researcher.
