Welcome to My Personal Website
My name is Hamidreza Sharifan, I defended my Ph.D. dissertation in October 2019 at the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering at Texas A & M University.
Two renowned universities have polished my academic expertise, an MSc degree in Environment and Process Engineering from the University of Stuttgart in Germany and another MSc degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Texas Tech University.
My current research is centered on the application of nanotechnology towards food safety and environmental engineering. Research in nano-enabled agriculture is an interdisciplinary approach that links to the bio-geo-chemical engineering principles.
Our efforts in research are to provide safe food and a clean environment for the growing population.
Through my research career, our team has investigated:
- The underlying mechanism of Engineered Nanoparticles interaction with different crops; grains, vegetables, and soil components.
- Environmental fate of heavy metals and metalloids in soil, water, and dietary plants.
- Surface adsorption of heavy metals/metalloids onto nanoparticles in aqueous and nonaqueous environmental compartments.
- Biological activities of the microbial community in the plant root zone in exposure to nanoparticles
- Interactions between engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) and dietary plants:
Phytotoxicity Transport Mechanism Uptake and Translocation Bioaccumulation
- Environmental fate of pharmaceutical and personal care products
