Ellie Hajizadeh is a Lecturer (Research & Teaching) of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Melbourne. Ellie was awarded a PhD in the field of Molecular Simulation of Soft Matter under the guidance of Prof. Billy Todd (Swinburne University of Technology) and Prof. Peter Daivis (RMIT) in 2015, followed by a two-year appointment as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Prof. Ronald Larson's Research Group at the University of Michigan. Ellie joined the Defence Science and Technology Group (DSTG) in 2017 as a Research Scientist, where she established her own research program in the field of ICME and managed a Next Generation Technologies Fund project to develop an ICME Paradigm for Advanced Acoustic Materials. Ellie uses multiscale materials simulation techniques to design novel soft condensed matter such as colloids, (bio)polymer melts and solutions from atomistic/molecular to meso to continuum scale, integrated in experiment. Her current research addresses the topics of polymer migration in confined fluids, active matter, metamaterials, rheology of complex fluids, self-assembly in block co-polymers, transport phenomena, and phase behaviour of colloidal suspensions.

Ellie identifies as culturally and linguistically diverse.
