Research interests

  • Colour-emotion
  • Photochromism
  • Sol-gel processing
  • Nanofibre production

Knowledge areas

Dr. Parhizkar has studied the effect of colour on emotions and its application to the textile industry during her MSc. During her PhD, she worked on the application of photochromism, i.e. colour-change in response to light, to textiles using the sol-gel technique to produce garments for such applications as UV protection. Her postdoctoral work has been focused on nanofibre production technologies and the surface modification and characterisation of nanofibres.
