Vahid Khakyzadeh was born in Hamedan, Iran. He received his B.S. degree (Pure Chemistry) and M.S. degree (Organic Chemistry) from Bu-Ali Sina University, Hamedan, Iran, at 2008, 2010 respectively under supervision of professor Mohammad Ali Zolfigol. He is currently working on his Ph. D. under the supervision of professor Mohammad Ali Zolfigol in organic chemistry. Among his recent awards, Vahid was awarded the outstanding MSc student (2009), the outstanding PhD student (2011) and distinguished PhD student at Bu-Ali Sina University (2012). He has also participated in over 27 research articles and 1 book. His research interests are green chemistry and catalysis, including the application of homogeneous, heterogeneous catalysis in organic synthesis.
