Research Fellow

I obtained my PhD of Mechanical Engineering from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore 2014. My PhD research aimed at proposing a mathematical model that characterises the dynamic behaviour of the piezoelectric actuators and mechanisms wherein the hysteresis nonlinearity had a significant impact on the response of such devices.

I received my master of Aerospace Engineering in January 2007 at Sharif University of Technology in Iran. My master's thesis aimed at system identification and control of flying objects equipped with internal moving masses that had been introduced as a new method of altitude control system.

Between May 2013 and February 2014, I worked as a research associate at Nanyang Technological University of Singapore on a project funded by Singapore Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (SSMC). Between July 2014 and February 2015, I worked as a Research Fellow at the National University of Singapore on the project related to the fatigue analysis of offshore structures. Between March 2016 and June 2017, I worked as a Research Fellow at Singapore University of Technology and Design on a collaborative Robotic Project with University of MIT.

Between June 2017 and Feb 2019, I worked as a Research Fellow at Singapore University of Technology and Design on a project funded by NAMIC (National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster in Singapore) related to the design and development of the first 3d-printed integrated pressure reducer in worldwide. In the second project under NAMIC, I worked as a researcher on the design, optimization and development of the nodal joints with irregular shaped and complex geometries used in the space frame structures and fabrication by metal 3d printer was also investigated.

As an industrial experience, I worked in the aviation industry between February 2004 and January 2009. During this period, I worked as a line and base maintenance engineer, design engineer for designing the spare parts and special tools used in overhaul process of wide-body airliners, and also worked as head of training section to train the technical personnel of the airline to perform maintenance tasks of a specific type of airplane.
