Dr. Reza Alizadeh obtained his Master degree in Materials Science from the University of Tehran in 2010. Ranking 1st among the graduated students, he won the PhD scholarship of the University of Tehran. The subject of his PhD project was studying superplasticity in some Mg alloys processed by different severe plastic deformation processes. The project was performed with collaboration with the University of Southampton (UK). At 2015, he spent a visiting stay at the University of Hong Kong, focusing on the microstructural characterization of ultra fine- and nano-grained Mg alloys with advanced techniques. After finishing his PhD in 2015, he continued his research in the University of Tehran under a postdoctoral program, working on the hot deformation behavior of Magnesium alloys.
In 2017, he joined IMDEA materials as a research associate under the Juan de la Cierva fellow. He is working on the deformation mechanisms of some Mg alloys via nano-mechanical testing techniques.
His main topic of research is studying the correlation between microstructure and mechanical properties of Magnesium alloys, and more specifically, studying high temperature mechanical properties such as creep and superplasticity via miniature testing techniques.
Dr. Alizadeh has published around 20 scientific papers in peer-reviewed international journals, and 5 presentations in international conferences.
