Short Biography

Ensieh Hosseini obtained her M.Sc. (2011) degrees in Chemistry from the Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, and her Ph.D. (2015) in Materials Engineering and Nanotechnology from the University of Aveiro in Portugal. Afterwards, she was a postdoctoral researcher at Strathclyde University and later she joined the Bendable Electronics and Sensing Technologies research group at the University of Glasgow. She subsequently was awarded the Marie Curie fellowship with the University of Glasgow in 2018. Ensieh joined the Department of Engineering at Durham University, in November 2021. Her current research interests include developing flexible sensors and piezoelectric/triboelectric energy harvesters based on novel functional materials and nanofibers for applications in wearable healthcare and environmental monitoring. She is a Senior Member of IEEE and serves as a committee member of IEEE Women in Sensors (WiSe) and IEEE Sensors Council Young Professionals Program.
