Dr. Parvaneh Mokarian

Research Associate Professor (CRANN)
CRANN

Research Associate Professor (Chemistry)

Parvaneh Mokarian is a Research Associate Professor in School of Chemistry and Principal Investigator at (SFI) Science Foundation Ireland Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research Centre (AMBER) in Trinity College Dublin. She is the coordinator of an €8.3 million European Horizon 2020 consortium called SUN-PILOT:1,2 Subwavelength Nanostructure Pilot Line (2018-2021). She has earned her PhD in 2009 in University of Sheffield in the UK being awarded a Dorothy Hodgkin's scholarship. Since then she worked as a Research Fellow in University College Cork in collaboration with Tyndall National Institute and Centre for Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices (CRANN), before joining TCD in 2016. Her research interest are on polymer thin films, polymers at surfaces and interfaces, light- nanostructure interaction, cell-nanosurface interaction and soft nanotechnology. Her research team (Intelligent Nano Surfaces Group) is currently focused on using materials such as block copolymers as templates for sub-wavelength nanostructures for nanofabrication, photonics applications, antireflective surfaces, self-cleaning and functional/smart surfaces. Dr. Mokarian's team has won the 1st prize for the "Best Innovation Award" by a multilateral project or technology in SPIE, Europe's biggest optics conference held in Brussels in April 2016.3 She is the winner of the "One-to-Watch" Trinity Innovation Awards 2017. 1 www.sunpilot.eu / Twitter: @sun_pilot 2 https://www.irishtimes.com/business/innovation/dublin-led-sun-pilot-project-a-guiding-light-in-nanotechnology-1.3331563 3 https://spie.org/conferences-and-exhibitions/photonics-europe/photonics-innovation- village/2016-award-winners
