Khashayar Razghandi received a B.Sc. degree in Material Science and Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran with a main focus on metals. During his M.Sc. studies at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg his research interest moved onto polymeric materials and finally biomaterials during his Ph.D. studies in a collaborative biomimetic project between the bio-material department of Max-Planck-Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, TU Berlin and the Institute for Building Materials at ETH Zurich.
Khashayar Razghandi has commenced post-doctoral work on the project »Self-Moving Materials« in a collaboration between Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Thomas Stach, Gerhard Scholtz) and the biomaterial department of the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (John Dunlop, Peter Fratzl), with the main goal of investigating the structure and function of the filtering house of free-swimming tunicate, Appendicularia Oikopleuridae.
