Issue Highlights

The July 2015 issue highlights the article by Professor Graeme W. Norval. This article compares safety management practices in the industry and academic engineering programs, and proposes ways to improve safety management procedures in academia.

2015 Award for Best Graduate Student Paper

We congratulate Ali Sarvi for his award winning paper Facile one step-synthesis and characterisation of high aspect ratio core-shell copper-polyaniline nanowires.

Dr. Ali Sarvi is a polymer engineer/researcher in the area of synthesis of nanoparticles and their polymer composites. This includes synthesis and modification of conductive nanofillers; and tuning the properties of composites by optimizing filler network structure.

Dr. Sarvi has received his bachelor and master’s degrees in Polymer Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), Iran in 2007 and 2009, respectively. Then, he studied the effects of crystal nucleation on rheological behavior of semi-crystalline polymer melts filled with nanoparticles. Later, he pursued his studies at the University of Calgary, Canada where he got his PhD in Chemical Engineering. His PhD thesis under supervision of Professor U. Sundararaj was focused on synthesis and characterization of conductive nanoparticles (i.e. metal nanowires) and nanofibers. Tailoring filler network structure in polymer composites at nanoscale was performed in order to improve polymer composite properties. The goal was to achieve the favorite electrical properties at the lowest possible nanofiller loadings.

Dr. Sarvi graduated his PhD in 2014 and now, he has a role of Chemical Production Specialist in ROSEN Canada where he works on development and manufacturing of engineering plastics for applications in severe environment like oil sand mining field.
