My name is Naghmeh (نغمه). I received my BSc degree in condensed matter physics.

Currently, I am a research assistant and PhD candidate at Forde Lab, SFU, working on mechanical properties of structural proteins such as collagen and elastin using single molecule biophysics techniques such as optical tweezers.
