Mohammad Rafiee earned his B.S. degree in chemistry from Bu-Ali Sina University, Hamadan, where he became intrigued with the use of electrons as “the simplest chemical reagents” for organic synthesis. He then pursued his graduate studies at Bu-Ali Sina University under the supervision of Prof. D. Nematollahi, where his doctoral work focused on electrochemical synthesis and molecular electrochemistry.
In 2008, he started an independent academic career at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences (IASBS), focusing on the development of electrodes modified with mediators for electrosynthetic applications.
In 2014, he joined Prof. Shannon Stahl’s group as a research scientist at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and pursued collaborative studies on mediated electrochemical reactions and electrosynthesis.
He is currently an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, where he joined as a faculty member in 2019
