Yasamin Kazemi completed her PhD program in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering department at University of Toronto in 2018. She received her MSc from Department of Chemical Engineering at Laval University (Quebec, Canada). Before joining the MPML in January 2014, she worked as a research assistant at Laval University. Her research experience covers a broad area of polymer engineering including polymer (rubber/thermoplastic) recycling, thermoplastic elastomers, composites with natural/manmade reinforcements, polymer blending, multi-layered structural composites and assessment of short and long term characteristics of polymeric compounds.
Yasamin is a recipient of the prestigious Alexander Graham Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship (CGS D) and is the author/co-author of over 17 publications including 7 journal papers.
Currently, her research work is focused on development of electrically conductive polymer composites, using morphological manipulation of polymer blends and microcellular structures.
