Dr Tahereh Nematiaram, a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Chemistry and the Materials Innovation Factory, reached the finals of the highly competitive L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Rising Talents awards programme.
L’Oréal-UNESCO Women in Science Rising Talent fellowships recognise exceptional early careers women scientists in the UK and Ireland, providing grants to support the recipients in pursuing their research.
Five grants are awarded to outstanding women postdoctoral scientists in the fields of Physical Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Computing, Life Science, and Sustainable Development.
Dr Nematiaram was one of only two candidates shortlisted for the Physical Sciences category and attended a ceremony at the House of Commons where she came away with the Highly Commended Award.

Dr Nematiaram has a double PhD in Photonics and Nanophysics and her research approach combines a new physical understanding with the study of large chemical databases.
Working in Professor Alessandro Troisi’s lab in the Materials Innovation Factory, her research is currently focused on discovering materials with specific optical and electronic properties, determining the realistic physical limit to such properties and developing inverse materials design strategies.
In addition to her research, she is deputy co-chair of Liverpool’s Research Staff Association and an Advocate of MHFA England.
She said: ‘I am very pleased to make it to the final for this year’s L’Oreal-Unesco For Women in Science Rising Talent Awards. To get so far in this prestigious competition is a huge recognition of my work and an achievement that I am very proud of.”
