Assoc. Prof. Alireza Dolatshahi‐Pirouz

Assoc. Prof at Technical University of Denmark, Department of Health Technology , CTO & co-founder of OuroBionics & co-founder of #TeamBioEngine.

Alireza Dolatshahi‐Pirouz received his Ph.D. in physics from Aarhus University in 2009 and then took on a postdoctoral‐research position at the Wyss Institute of Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvard Medical School. He joined Technical University of Denmark as an Assistant Professor in 2015 and later on started his own research group, #TeamBioEngine, at DTU Nanotech. Currently, the group is a part of the newly launch department, Health Technology, and their research lies at the crossroads of biology, engineering, physics, chemistry and biomaterials. #TeamBioEngine aim to create advanced material innovations based on bioinspired discoveries, and they believe such bioinspired materials and complex nanostructures will drive the engine of the next big revolution in material science. They are trying to explore interesting green solutions in the fields of nanomedicine, electronics and tissue engineering. Along this vein, they introduced Fleco-ionics and Fleconess in 2019, which offers a huge leap forward towards foldable substrates for flexible electronics. What’s more, the team is currently working on developing new self‐healable and stretchable materials with high electrical sensitivity for applications within the emerging fields of flexible electronics, cyborganics, and soft robotics. In 2018, Alireza Dolatshahi‐Pirouz received a VIDI Grant to further develop his innovative research on regenerative biomaterials at Radboudumc. To date he has published close to 70 papers–most published in medium to high impact journals. He is also a highly cited young researcher with his citations numbering 3495 and an h-index of 35 according to Google Scholar.
