Research Interests:

Dr. Pasebani’s research is mainly focused on alloy development for selective laser melting and binder jetting additive manufacturing, as well as additive manufacturing of multi-functional iron-based and nickel-based alloys and composites for energy and other high temperature applications.


Dr. Pasebani is an assistant professor of advanced manufacturing in the school of Mechanical, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering (MIME) at the Oregon State University (OSU). She is the Principal Investigator and Director of Powder Metallurgy and Additive Manufacturing Laboratory (PMAM) Laboratory. 

She received her B.S. and M.S. degree with honor in Metallurgical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering at the Isfahan University of Technology and a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering at University of Idaho in 2014.

She received UIdaho College of Engineering the “Outstanding Graduate Student” award, UIdaho Alumni Excellence Award, TMS 2013 best graduate student’s poster in Structural Materials Division, American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers (AIME) Henry DeWitt Scholarship and American Nuclear Society (ANS) Neutron Silver Award.

After graduation, she worked as an Innovation Engineer for the North American Hoganas  in Johnstown, PA where she designed and developed water atomized 17-4 PH and duplex stainless-steel powder alloys for SLM and metal injection molding processes.

She joined the school of MIME in September of 2016 and established PMAM laboratory located in the Advanced Technology and Manufacturing Institute (ATAMI).
