I received a B.Sc. in Mechanical Eng. from Amirkabir U.T. (Tehran Polytechnic), Tehran, Iran, in 2010, an M.Sc. in Mechanical Eng. from Sharif U.T., Tehran, Iran, in 2012, and a Ph.D. in Robotics at King’s College London, London, UK, in 2017.

I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Robotic Systems Engineering at Robotics and Vision in Medicine (RViM) Lab, Dept. of Surgical and Interventional Engineering, King’s College London, UK, since 2019, and a member of IEEE Soft Robotics newsletter team since 2015. I have been a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Morphological Computation at the University of Bristol, Bristol, UK, in 2017-19, a visiting Ph.D. student at Dyson School of Design Engineering at Imperial College London, UK, in 2017-18, and a visiting scholar at Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Clemson University, USA, in Dec 2017. My research experience is in the fields of stiffness controllable continuum manipulators, soft robotics, bioinspiration, morphological computation, dynamic systems modeling and control, passive walking, and rescue robots. My research interests include medical and space robotics, micro-robotics, smart material, and 3D-printing technology.
