by Yarjan Abdul Samad, Cambridge Graphene Centre, University of Cambridge.

Biography:

Dr. Yarjan Abdul Samad is a research associate and a project leader at the Cambridge Graphene Centre, University of Cambridge. His research areas include electromechanical and electro and photo- thermal properties of carbon and two-dimensional materials, as well as flexible and stretchable composites for space, health, environment and energy applications. Dr. Abdul Samad has developed sustainable methods of fabricating e-textiles and flexible and stretchable conductors and composites based on porous 3D structures of layered materials – typically graphene – that are useful for aerospace composites, biosensing, water purification and energy storage. He is among the team of experimentalists who tested properties of graphene for the first time in Zero Gravity (Zero G) environments by using European Space Agency’s parabolic flights. He has won several awards such as the Gold medals for exceptional academic and all round performances, innovator of the year 2015 award in UAE, best talks & poster awards at several international conferences.  He has worked with people from diverse educational, ethnic and cultural backgrounds in many parts of the world.
