S. Mohadeseh Taheri-Mousavi joined CMU in September 2022 as an Assistant Professor from MIT where she was a postdoctoral associate jointly in the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering. Before that, she was a postdoctoral fellow at Brown University. She received her Ph.D. from EPFL, Switzerland, and her B.Sc. and M.Sc. from Sharif University of Technology, Iran. Her research interests lie in developing novel multi-scale numerical and analytical frameworks in combination with machine learning techniques to discover next-generation structural alloys produced by various manufacturing techniques (especially additive manufacturing) and under extreme environmental conditions. She received both early and advanced prestigious Swiss National Science Foundation fellowships for her postdoctoral studies at Brown and MIT.


Taheri-Mousavi's research focuses on developing novel multi-scale hybrid numerical frameworks to discover next-generation structural alloys under extreme environmental conditions. Extending the service life of e.g., steel and Al whose production constitutes 28% of the industrial gas emissions significantly contributes to energy sectors.
