Milad Radiom received his PhD in Chemical Engineering at Virginia Tech in 2014, after MEng and BSc in Thermal and Fluids Engineering and Mechanical Engineering respectively from Nanyang Technological University and Amirkabir University of Technology. Thereafter, he was appointed as a postdoctoral research associate in Laboratory of Colloid and Surface Chemistry, University of Geneva. His research interests are physical chemistry of polymers, colloids and surfaces as related to single molecule force spectroscopy, micro-rheology and surface forces.
