Hamed Samadi, 37, received his BSc in Ceramics Engineering from Iran University of Science & Technology in 1997, his MSc from Materials and Energy Research Center in 1999 in the same field and his PhD in 2009 from University of Toronto.  His theses at both BSc and MSc levels were based on refractory castables. Before entering PhD program in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Toronto, he was working in some of the biggest and most famous refractory companies in Iran. He joined the University of Toronto in 2003. His thesis is entitled "An alternative thermal barrier coating for diesel engines."  His research interests include mechanical properties of ceramics, thermal-sprayed coatings, numerical modeling in materials science, mullite ceramics and solid oxide fuel cells.

The father of two, Hamed enjoys reading books (especially history and persian poetry), blogging, photography, sports and travelling in his leisure time.
