Dr. Ilchat Sabirov graduated in 1999 with Engineer degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Ufa State Aviation Technical University (Ufa, Russia). In 2004, he got his PhD in Metallurgy from the Montanuniversitaet Leoben (Leoben, Austria). He has held postdoctoral positions at the Erich Schmid Institute for Materials Science of the Austrian Academy of Science and Deakin University (Australia). He was also a visiting researcher at Technische Universitaet Clausthal and RWTH Aachen (Germany). Dr. Sabirov’s current research interests focus on deformation processing of advanced metallic materials (light metals, steels, superalloys, etc), their deformation behavior and structure-properties relationship.
Dr. Sabirov has been the Principal Investigator in five European projects, including coordination of two European projects in the 7th Framework Program. He has co-authored over sixty papers in international journals and international patent, as well as contributed to organization of research symposia on several scientific Conferences such as EUROMAT, ICYRAM, AMPT, etc.
