Bio

Nahid Shayesteh Swails is an Adjunct Faculty in the department of Physics at the
University of South Carolina at Lancaster. Before joining USC in 2018, she received her
B.Sc. in Nuclear Physics from Isfahan University of Technology, her M.Sc. in
Computational Physics from Sharekrord University and her Ph.D. in Condensed Matter
Physics from University of South Carolina at Columbia. Dr. Swails's research interests lie
in the nanotechnology, fabrication of small sized material, superconductivity, thin films,
semiconductors, characterization of novel materials for different applications and
mathematical modeling area.
