Dr Niloufar Raeis-Hosseini is an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA). She was awarded her PhD in Nanoelectronic Materials from POSTECH and is a lecturer at Cranfield University.
Niloufar has initiated an innovative teaching method, including videos in her lectures to engage students and encourage them to participate in discussion groups with their peers. She has built and led a research group of Advanced Nanoelectronic Materials and Brain-Inspired Memristive Synapses (ANMABIMS). Her group is dedicated to modelling, fabricating, and characterising novel nanodevices and data storage systems with innovative, cost-effective nanofabrication techniques.
Niloufar has a strong profile in nanotechnology, nanofabrication, and nanodevices. She is an international expert in non-volatile memory devices, particularly Resistive Switching Random Access Memories (ReRAMs), memristors, and artificial synapses. Niloufar pioneers the designing, atomic-level characterisation, and manufacturing of nanoelectronic materials and nanodevices. She uses various advanced functional materials, from transitional metal oxides and phase change materials to polymers, nanocomposites, and biodegradable materials for memristor components.
Niloufar was an Honorary Research Fellow at Imperial College London and has secured a research grant for her idea on 'flexible biomemristor as a biological synaptic emulator for scalable neuromorphic computing'.
She conducted her research on memristive devices as a principal investigator in a multidisciplinary team in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Imperial College London.
Niloufar has contributed as a role model to Women in EEE by attracting more female students to engineering fields.
