My name is Hamidreza Sharifan, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering at Texas A & M University. My academic expertise has been polished by two renowned universities, 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 in nanotechnology and food process engineering is an interdisciplinary approach that centered on bio-geo-chemistry to provide safe food and clean environment for the world. Through my research, I have 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

Research Interests

  • Interactions between engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) and dietary plants:


Phytotoxicity      Transport Mechanism     Uptake and Translocation     Bioaccumulation
  • Environmental fate of pharmaceutical and personal care products
