Biography: 

Dr. Masoud Mahjouri-Samani a former PhD Student in the LANE group is starting the next chapter of his career as an Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department at Auburn University (AU). Masoud joined our group in 2006 as an undergraduate McNair fellow and continued his research as a graduate student in 2008 working on laser-assisted synthesis and processing of carbon nanotubes. He was a highly motivated and hardworking student who had clear goals for his future academic career. He did extremely well on his graduate program, published scientific papers, and received number of recognitions, awards, scholarships, and fellowships. These achievements made him an attractive candidate for a prestigious postdoctoral position at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), where he continued to expand his excellent research, collaboration, and networking activities. At ORNL he initiated and advanced a new research program in the emerging area of two-dimensional (2D) materials and devices. His extraordinary achievement and progress resulted in high impact publications, recognitions, and invited talks at universities and conferences. He advises the new and prospective students to understand the fact that: “It is crucial to set your goals in the early stage of your academic career and clearly recognize what is needed to get there. You will definitely face many discouraging obstacles and disappointments on the way, but stay focused, be patient, don’t nag, and work even harder - It finally pays off!”
