Dr. Golnaz Taghavi is a Research Fellow in Functional Materials Research Group at Coventry University. She is currently working on a EU Horizon 2020 project (Maturolife) that brings together two different disciplines, material science and design, to produce high added-value assistive technology products. Before coming to CU, Golnaz studied PhD in Materials Science at Istanbul Technical University, working on the deposition of nitride coatings using Physical Vapor Deposition technique. Golnaz obtained her BSc and MSc both in Materials Engineering in 2007 and 2011, respectively. She has published several peer-reviewed journal papers and presented at some of the most prestigious international conferences, in one of which she was awarded two prizes.
