Dr. Ali Jalili is an Australian Research Council DECRA Fellow at School of Chemical Engineering in University of New South Wales Sydney. He received his PhD from the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (IPRI) at the University of Wollongong, conducting research on additive manufacturing of electromaterials for electrochemical device fabrication under the supervision of ARC Laureate Fellow and the director of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES), Prof. Gordon G. Wallace in 2013. Following his Ph.D. graduation, he has received graphene development fellowship from ACES, where he was closely working with various nodes of ACES and the materials node of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF). This position gave him the opportunity to interact with a larger network of researchers and exposed him to research areas outside of his expertise, instigating new project ideas and collaborations. At 2017, He has joined Prof. Calum Drummond’s research group at RMIT as a vice-chancellor's postdoctoral fellow to explore biomimetic systems for tailor-making a vast range of liquid crystalline-based 3D printing inks. At 2018, he has joined ARC Laureate Fellow Prof. Douglas MacFarlane’s laboratory at Monash University as a visiting fellow to conduct research on electrochemical nitrogen reduction reaction. From 2019, he has joined ARC Laureate Fellow Prof. Rose Amal’s Particles and Catalysis Research Group to continue research on nitrogen reduction to ammonia with the ARC DECRA Fellowship.
