Educational Information:

  • PhD in Mechanical Engineering, North Carolina State University, 2013 – ongoing.
  • MS in Mechanical Engineering; Applied Design, University of Tabriz, Tabriz, Iran (2010)
  • BS in Mechanical Engineering; Solid Mechanics, University of Tabriz, Tabriz, Iran (2007)


Youness used to work on mechanical characterization of engineering materials ​through experimental and numerical methods. He has been mostly working on failure mechanisms, fatigue, fracture, fretting and impact. Upon joining  Schwartz group in 2015 as a PhD student of Mechanical Engineering, he started to work on Magneto-Electro-Mechanical modeling of multiferroic magnetoelectric thin-film composites. His main goal is to improve the magnetoelectric coupling by​ interface engineering,​ modeling the strain transfer between ​the ​two phases and resultant magnetoelectric behavior.
