He received his PhD in Biorobotics from Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, Pisa and MSc in Mechatronics from South Tehran Branch, Azad University. During his PhD he designed and developed Bio-inspired inverse kinematic algorithm for anthropomorphic robotic manipulators, and designed and developed a unified motion planning and compliance control framework for upper-arm Neuro-rehabilitation robotic task. Later on he persued research on design, fabrication and modeling or soft origami actuators at Center for Micro-BioRobotics (CMBR), IIT as a postdoctoral researcher. In 2019 he joined the Farm Tech Group at Wageningen University & Research and is currently working on soft adhesive grippers for delicate crop handling. The project is in collaboration with the Experimental Zoology Group, and the Group of Physical Chemistry and Soft Matter.
