Dr. Ilchat Sabirov graduated in 1999 with Engineer degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Ufa State Aviation Technical University (Ufa, Russia). In 2004, he got his PhD in Metallurgy from the Montanuniversitaet Leoben (Leoben, Austria). He has held postdoctoral positions at the Erich Schmid Institute for Materials Science of the Austrian Academy of Science and Deakin University (Australia). He was also a visiting researcher at Technische Universitaet Clausthal and RWTH Aachen (Germany). Dr. Sabirov’s current research interests focus on deformation processing of advanced metallic materials (light metals, steels, superalloys, etc), their deformation behavior and processing-microstructure-properties relationship.
Dr. Sabirov has been the Principal Investigator in six European projects, including coordination of two European projects in the 7th Framework Program and one European Project in frame of the Horyzon 2020 Program, and in three contracts with industrial companies. He has co-authored over eighty papers in international journals, a book and international patent, as well as contributed to organization of research symposia in frame of several scientific Conferences, such as MSE, ICYRAM, AMPT, etc.
