A Chalmers grant to support her postdoctoral studies in the US

Postdoctoral researcher Nooshin Mortazavi at the Department of Physics, Chalmers, has recently been granted SEK 135 000 from the Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation. The grant will cover research costs during her first year at Harvard University in Boston, USA.
Through this foundation, Chalmers can support researchers who spend some time at a University in the United States. The foundation is aimed at researchers who, in collaboration with leading research environments and colleagues at prominent universities in the USA, wish to develop their research by finding new inspiration or guiding it along with new paths.

Earlier this year Nooshin Mortazavi was awarded an international postdoctoral grant from the Swedish Research Council (VR) to carry out research on "High-Temperature Thermoelectrics Based on Natural Superlattice Oxides" in John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Science at Harvard. The project has an ambitious goal: conversion of large amounts of waste heat to electricity using an intriguing but poorly characterized class of still-developing high-temperature ceramics, known as natural superlattices (NSLs).

Nooshin Mortazavi will spend up to three years abroad before returning to Chalmers.
