Alireza Yaghoubi (born 1990 in Tehran, Iran) is an entrepreneur,  engineer,  scientist,  inventor and designer.  He is internationally recognized for designing AirGo, an ergonomic passenger environment which has been described as “the future of airlines seating”.    Alireza is a recipient of James Dyson design award.  He is also the co-founder and  CTO of a Singapore-based startup named AirGo Design.  In materials science and physical chemistry, he is known for his contribution to the fields of biomedical implants,    plasma-assisted inorganic synthesis  and development of nanomaterials for clean energy.    In honor of his achievements and despite his young age, he has been appointed to an endowed chair as the high impact research young scientist at  University of Malaya from where he has also received a bachelor's degree as the Frederic Barnes Waldron student of mechanical engineering.
