Fazel Bateni

Ph.D. Student

I was born and grew up in Esfahan, Iran. I chose to be an engineer due to the important role of engineering to increase the quality of life and chemical engineering is just the meeting of this practice-oriented attitude. I received my B.Sc. in chemical engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology (AUT) in Tehran, Iran. During my undergraduate studies, I had the opportunity to focus on the design and optimization of photoreactors for wastewater treatment. With my growing interest in heterogeneous catalysis and its diverse applications, I applied to Ohio University (OU) for my graduate studies (M.Sc.) and joined Dr. John Staser’s research group. I gained invaluable experimental skills in cutting-edge electrochemical engineering research. I focused on the development of non-precious and nanostructured electrocatalysts for lignin electrolysis in an anion exchange membrane (AEM) electrolyzer.


In the Abolhasani Lab, I’m focusing on the studies of lead halide perovskite quantum dots utilizing advanced microscale flow reactors.
