The European Ceramic Society

YCN representative - Iran

Setareh Zakeri

YCN representative for the Iranian Ceramic Society


From giant galaxies to nanoparticles… That has been my journey in science. After finishing my Bachelor of Physics, which specifically deepened my knowledge in Cosmology and Astrophysics, my enthusiasm in science brought me to Tampere University (TAU) for a master’s degree in Nanotechnology. My adventure in science did not end there as I got the opportunity to do my current doctoral studies on 3D printing of ceramic nanomaterials. My doctoral thesis’s topic is about the fabrication of porous ceramic structures via stereolithography to be used as catalytic converters.

Being a member of the Ceramic Materials Group at TAU since 2015 has brought me an enormous interest in ceramic materials and processing of them. I enjoy the most teamwork and collaborating with others but also effectively self-managing during independent projects. My expertise includes implementation of various research tools, project design and management, data analysis and interpretation, writing academic applications and manuscripts, collaborating with academic and industrial partners, and presenting in conferences and seminars. Additionally, I am teaching master and PhD students a course called ‘Processing of advanced ceramics’.


Teaching has been always my dream and I would like to be a professional university-level lecturer during my adventure in academy. That is why I am currently doing pedagogical studies to acquire high pedagogic quality
of teaching. I know my journey in science is long and I am excited to see what more this adventure will bring for me.
