Najmeh Honari

Research Fellow

I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Electronic Engineering. In 2021, I earned my Ph.D. with a focus on Semiconductor Devices from the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Tehran, Iran. My background includes expertise in density functional theory (DFT) methods, used to calculate the electrical and optical properties of two-dimensional materials. Embarking on a postdoctoral journey at the University of Houston, I joined forces with Dr. Lars Grabow’s Computational Catalysis and Interface Chemistry Group. Together, we were delving into advanced catalysis research, specifically focusing on computational screening of electrocatalysts for the decoupling of chlorine and oxygen evolution. Building upon my background in materials science and DFT, I am enthusiastic about bridging the gap between materials science and energy storage technologies. Beyond scientific research, I find enjoyment in reading books.
