Sadeq received his doctorate degree in mechanical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. By training, he majored in solid mechanics during his bachelor’s studies and completed master’s degree in applied mechanical design both from University of Tehran. His research mostly aimed at developing novel additive manufacturing (AM) techniques and application of AM to undiscovered areas such as microelectronics, energy storage, and micro biomedical devices. During his Ph.D. studies, he developed a new 3D microfabrication technique and demonstrated its functionality by offering solutions to promote the design customization and reduce the cost of fabrication of micro-batteries, neural probes, micro-electrode arrays, and ultralight materials. The results of his research have been published in several prestigious scientific journals and filed/pre-filed patents and received publicity in news media. During his postdoctoral training at Cornell University, he uses CHESS Synchrotron X-ray beam to investigate the wettability and flooding in additively manufactured CO2R reactors.
