Responsibility / Good time management / Research and analytical skills / Flexibility / Creativity / Teamwork
I’m Mahsa Kianinia. M.Sc. in chemical engineering graduate from Sahand University of Technology, Tabriz, Iran with a GPA of 18.66/20. I have a strong desire to continue in Ph.D. My decision for applying for a Ph.D. is because of my long-term interest in the field of engineering and research.
I’ve completed my master thesis on modeling porous media by pore network model. I have used image processing tools and MATLAB code to estimate the pore size and permeability of several porous media images.
Most crucially, I’m quite eager to do laboratory work and experimental study in all fields of chemical engineering. I am a very hardworking person and I am sure that I will succeed in all fields.
I am keenly interested in joining the research team as a Ph.D. student.

My research interests and reasons behind them
During my academic years at the university, I have gained a lot of experience in modeling and simulation but now, since I have had many laboratory courses and experiences before, I am very interested and resolute to work in the laboratory and doing experimental research to complete my chemical engineering knowledge, because of that I am ready to learn any subject and training based on laboratory work quickly. And I am quite confident with my diligence that I can do all the lab work like my previous modeling and simulation work.
My interest in doing laboratory work and many research studies that I have recently had on this topic like synthesis and characterization of catalysts (MOF, zeolites,...)
Because of the importance of this issue in the whole world, I am very eager to work in this field. Due to the fact that I am familiar with almost all methods of water and wastewater treatment and I have already read and researched a lot about them, I want to work more specialized.
