BiographyMohammad Bereyhi was born in 1993 in south-west of Iran in Ahvaz. He attended primary and high school in National Organization of Exceptional Talents (NODET). He ranked 12th in Iranian national university entrance exam known as Konkour and started his undergraduate studies in Sharif University of Technology in 2011. He finished an EE-Physics double BSc in 2016 with thesis work on "Computational methods for guided and leaky waves in 1D waveguides" under supervision of Prof. Khashayar Mehrany and Prof. Amir Borji. He joined EPFL in 2016 after an internship in Max-Planck Institute for the Science of Light in the Nano-Optics lab.
He started his thesis in the group of Prof. Tobias Kippenberg in the Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements (LPQM) on "High Stress Silicon Nitride Nanomechanics" and its applications in "Nano-optomechanical Hybrid Transducers" under a Marie-Curie PhD fellowship. In 2019, he founded Nanofab-net - an online open access nanofabrication knowledge sharing platform - in the framework of EPFL's Open Science Initiative. Nanofab-net was granted 300 kCHF for three years to explore open science practices in the field of nanofabrication.
