Kiel Nano, Surface and Interface Science (KiNSIS)

Dr. Hamed Rajabi - KiNSIS Life Sciences

What was the topic of your dissertation?

"My PhD project focused on the mechanics of insect wings. Although wings are lightweight and seemingly fragile structures, to accomplish their role, they sustain millions of cycles of mechanical loading and numerous accidental collisions. But how do they resist all the stresses and what is the secret behind their durability? These were the questions that I aimed to address during my PhD at Kiel University."

What fascinates you about your research field?

"In my research, in general, I try to uncover the secrets behind the design of biological materials/structures. The fact is that most of biological systems, which may look simple at first glance, exhibit complicated designs at multiple scales, from macro-scale down to nano-scale. What fascinates me most is how such complexities provide biological systems with the required functionality, and what we can learn from them to improve the performance of our engineering designs."

Why did you decide to do your PhD at the CAU?

"My intention to come to Kiel was to join the research group of my PhD supervisor, Prof. Gorb, who is one of the most known scientists in my research area. Doing a PhD in Kiel was enjoyable, exciting, inspiring and, of course, challenging. I received much support from my friends, colleagues and students, without whom I might not have succeeded."

What are your plans now after completing your PhD?

"I am currently working as a Postdoctoral Researcher. My plan is to gain knowledge and skills to become an academic group leader, which is a step towards my ultimate aim: finding pioneer ground-breaking solutions for our real-world problems and educating the next generation of bright-mind scientists."
