Senior Research Fellow

Nishar Hameed

Dr Nishar Hameed is currently an ARC DECRA Fellow working with the Manufacturing Future Research Institute.

Nishar’s research focusses on frontier technologies in advanced polymers composite materials and he works closely with industry to solve real world material challenges that are underpinned by fundamental science. His achievements include many “firsts” in the field, leading to follow-up studies and commercialisation. His team recently developed several new technologies to produce smart, flexible and rapid cure composites - that can be integrated with other matierals to make formable and fibre reinforced composites, concrete preforms and graphene nanocomposites. 

Prior to joining Swinburne, Nishar was a Research Fellow at Carbon Nexus, Deakin University, where he completed his PhD and Alfred Deakin Post Doc Fellowship.
