I am currently a researcher within the field of polymer technology, focusing on development of bio-based composites.
I have worked at the University of Borås since 2011. I hold a PhD resource recovery-polymer technology at University of Borås (2015), a MSc in Mechanical Engineering with a major in Textile Technology from the University of Borås (2011), as well as a master’s and bachelor's degree in Textile engineering from Isfahan University of Technology, Iran (2008 and 2010).
I participate in two research projects; the strategic collaboration Borås-Skövde (Smart textiles) financed by Västra Götalandsregionen, and the project development of bio-based hybrid textile reinforcement in composites (II) financed by Smart Textiles.

Behnaz Baghaei, researcher at Smart Textiles, has developed a biocomposite which is stronger than other known biocomposites.
