Assistant Professor

About Me

Davoud Jafari has been recently appointed as Assistant Professor in the Department of Design Production and Management (DPM) at the University of Twente (UT). Davoud obtained his Ph.D. in Thermal Engineering at the University of Pisa (Italy) in 2016. Later, Davoud joined DPM at UT in early 2017. His research's ultimate goal is to develop and engineer new materials, enabling energy solutions in the real world. To do this, he applies the physics of fabrication and thermal engineering to synthesize, characterize, and incorporate innovative materials into next-generation energy conversion and storage systems. Davoud currently works on advancing additive manufacturing techniques to fabricate multiscale porous materials for electrochemical technologies including fuel cells for terrestrial and space applications.
