Dr Mahdieh T. Ebrahimi is a Daphne Jackson Research Fellow in the Metal forming and materials modelling group, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Imperial College London.

She carries out fundamental research in micromechanics of crystalline materials, their microstructure interactions and correlation to failure of materials and their mechanical properties. She is interested in Material Genome Engineering and Virtual Manufacturing to design new advanced materials with predictable properties.

She completed her PhD in the Theory and simulation of materials at Physics Department, Imperial College London, under the supervision of Prof. Daniele Dini, Prof. Daniel Balint, Prof. Adrian Sutton, and Dr Serdar Oyzbayraktar in 2017. Her PhD studentship was funded by Element Six Ltd; the world’s leading manufacturer of synthetic diamond for hard abrasive materials. She obtained her bachelor degree in solid-state physics and her master degree in gravitational and particle physics from Tehran University.
