I have received my Ph.D. in Biorobotics from Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, Pisa and MSc in Mechatronics from South Tehran Branch, Azad University. During my Ph.D., I designed and developed a 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 tasks. Later on, I pursued research on the design, fabrication, and modeling of soft origami actuators at the Center for Micro-BioRobotics (CMBR), IIT as a postdoctoral researcher. In 2019 I joined the Farm Tech Group at Wageningen University & Research and am currently working on advanced soft grippers for delicate crop handling. The project is in collaboration with the Experimental Zoology Group, and the Group of Physical Chemistry and Soft Matter.
