Roghi has completed her postdoctoral studies in the Grimmgroup and she is currently a staff scientist at AR Metallizing.

Roghi completed her undergraduate degree in Tabriz, Iran, concentrated on applied chemistry. As a Master\’s student, Roghi worked with Ablolali Alemi in the Division of Inorganic Chemistry of the University of Tabriz, Chemistry Department focusing on synthesis and characterization of lanthanum doped bismuth tin oxide pyrochlore nanocrystals.

For PhD studies, Roghi moved to Maine and worked with Carl Tripp group in the surface chemistry lab in University of Maine, Orono. She did modification and characterization of metal oxide surfaces for applications such as pore size tuning in mesoporous materials and photocatalytic activity of coated magnetic particles.
