Rayehe Karimi Mahabadi

Postdoctoral Associate

Rayehe Karimi Mahabadi is a postdoctoral associate in the Advanced Materials Laboratory within the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science. Her current research is focused on designing acoustic metamaterials by AI. She obtained her Ph.D. degree in Applied Mechanical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology in 2022. She was also a researcher at Laboratory of Wave Engineering, Department of Electrical Engineering at EPFL. Her Ph.D. research was on deformable electromagnetic metamaterials which resulted in proposing a multiscale multiphysics framework to analyze such surfaces. Her M.Sc. research was on the optimization of composite plates reinforced with shape memory alloy (SMA) fibers under free vibration.
