Curriculum Vitae (CV) | M.Sc. in Mechatronics Engineering

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood” and “I was taught that the way of progress was neither swift nor easy” Professor Maria Skłodowska-Curie said which is the fact that I have experienced throughout my life. I am ambitious in that challenge myself, push myself to broaden my horizons or achieve a difficult goal. Also being at the interface between Mechanics, Mechatronics and Control is amazing, dealing with a live challenge! I am interested in learning and using mechanics, mathematics, and physics to describe and deal with the natural world and robots. In this regard, I enjoy both computational science and experimental methods. More specifically, my interests include:

  •  Modelling, Integrated/Mechanical Designing, Analysis and Optimization Systems
  •  Control Systems Design, Optimization and Developing Algorithm and Simulation
  •  Nonlinear System Identification, Nonlinear Control and Realtime Process Optimisation
  •  Embedded, Robotics, Autonomous, Mechatronics, Cyber-Physical, Biomedical and Transportation Systems

Furthermore, I benefit from programming experience in Matlab and C++ and experience in prototyping some robotic system. I’m able to work at the intersection of several research domains (mechanical designing, control, mechatronics, aerodynamics, biology and artificial intelligence).

As in my whole life, during my graduate researches, I tried to do my best. Along with some other honors and awards.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you think either I can help you in a case or we can have a research collaboration.
