Kamran Keramatnejad is PhD candidate of Electrical Engineering at UNL since 2013, doing research on electrical properties of Carbon-based materials and their interaction with lasers. Prior to starting his PhD study, Kamran served as the lecturer for graduate courses such as "Semiconductor Devices" and "Theory and Technology of Fabrication of Semiconductor Devices" in Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, both during his Msc studies and after graduation. He has been frequently involved in other educational tasks such as teacher's assistantship, tutoring, and advising since his undergraduate studies. In addition, Kamran has the experience of preparing successful white papers and collaborating with industrial companies such as Conductix-Wamplfer in an effort to link the science behind his research to the real cases of its application in industry. He is the a recipient of the Milton Mohr graduate fellowship (2015). He has also won the 3rd place in Best Student Paper Award at ICALEO conference (2015).
