Paniz Soltani 1991-2020

Paniz Soltani, a former FAME Master student of the intake 2015-2017, passed away in the airplane crash near Tehran on 08.01.2020.

Paniz has studied in the University of Augsburg in Germany and the University of Aveiro in Portugal. “She was a very gentle and kind student, not to mention the impressive academic performance in the thesis,” says Ana Barros, FAME local coordinator in Aveiro.

When the accident took place, she was working as a PhD fellow on Polymer Research at MPI in Germany.

The whole FAME consortium extends our deepest sympathies to her tragic disappearance and wishes the family to stay strong in this moment of sorrow.

Paniz will always live in our hearts.
