Parastoo holds a PhD in Biomedical engineering from the University of Birmingham (2014), BSc from Tehran University and MSc degrees from the University of Birmingham in Biochemical engineering. Presently, she works as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Birmingham, school of Metallurgy and Materials since April 2014.
Her research experience over the past 8 years was with an excellent background in multiple scientific disciplines including material science, relationship between biomaterial properties (physical and mechanical) and their biological response (biomedical engineering) and biochemical engineering as well as the development of near net shape manufacturing techniques such additive manufacturing techniques to fabricate metal and ceramic medical implants. After her PhD in tissue engineering of bone and cartilage, Parastoo joined Advanced Materials and Processing Laboratory (AMPLab) group to explore the application of 3D printing in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Her research focuses on the utilising of the design flexibility of the additive manufacturing techniques in healthcare to fabricate patient- specific implants. Dr Jamshidi currently works on an EPSRC funded project entitled Smart Peripheral Stents for the Lower Extremity- Design, Manufacturing and Evaluation.
