Meysam Keshavarz is currently a Research Associate at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Imperial College London.

He graduated from University Technology of Malaysia with Master of Science degree in Materials Science and Engineering with a focus in Nanomaterials. He received his PhD degree in diagnostic and therapeutic application of nanomaterials from Ryerson University, during which he developed diagnostic templates for early-stage identification of biomarkers associated with cancer cells.

Meysam has studied the interaction of nano and quantum materials with cells in cellular level. He has also been working on development of nanomedicines for selective treatment of cancer cells. While doing his PhD, he has also spent one year at (iBEST) Institute for Biomedical Engineering, Science and Technology, St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto, Canada.

His research involves in development of Micro/Nano-robots for targeted drug delivery to the hard-to-reach organs. 

His main research interests include applications of Nano and Quantum materials for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes.
