          Hossein is a Chemist with many years of experience as a senior analytical, environmental and material chemist and a team leader in both academia and industry with extensive background on synthesis, characterization, properties and  environmental applications  (for water, air and soil remediation processes ) of porous zeolitic materials from natural and synthetic zeolite to MOFs & ZIFs.

          He has developed several technology-based processes (up to pilot scales) and products (up to prototypes) and also directed industrial scale projects.

          He has written many client-oriented R&D proposals and secured  funding from industries and government agencies by forecasting the trend of research and development in manufacturing novel materials for separation and catalyst applications. He is a senior consultant for several Canadian and International companies, helping them to develop new products and marketing their technology-based products worldwide. He has worked with, developed SOPs for and troubleshoot many analytical instrumentation such as GC, HPLC, AA, ICP, TGA, DSC, BET, XRD, XRF, SEM, DVS, UV-vis, FTIR, DLS, KF, Radioanalytical techniques (Gamma, Alpha and Beta spectroscopy), etc.

       Hossein is serving as a member of editorial board of several international journals and as a member of scientific board of many international conference.

      He has taught several chemistry courses such as analytical chemistry, general chemistry, material and environmental chemistry, etc. and facilitated many technical & scientific workshops  and also published many scientific articles including more than 100 scientific papers in peer-reviewed  journals.
