Brief description (about me):

I am Dr Hamed Ahari, an associate professor in the department of Food Science and Technology, Science and Research branch of Islamic Azad University, Iran, Tehran. The department’s key competences are in a wide range of food science techniques applied to industrial and academic research for food and health, our department is a dynamic and creative team engaged in a wide range of inter-disciplinary applications. My main research focus is on nano packaging and nano emulsions. I completed my post doc in the field of nanobiotechnology in Shahid Beheshti University of Medical sciences in 2012. Since then, I have conducted several research projects in the field of food nanotechnology and have published the results of my works in many well-known journals. I have three granted US patents as well as three PCTs. My team and I were able to produce Iranian saffron nanoemulsion using ultrasonic technique, we successfully registered it as a knowledge-based product. This product has been registered as “Delwa” brand in the trademark office. I have received several awards for my inventions including Geneva Inventions, Challenge and Innovation Forum (Qatar 2021), and International Federation of Inventors’ Associations.
