I am a Robotics Mechanical Engineer and a member of the Dynamic Legged Systems (DLS) lab at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT). I am about to graduate with a Master's degree in Robotics Engineering from the University of Genova (UniGe).

In my current role at IIT, under the supervision of Dr. Claudio Semini and Dr. Matteo Villa, I am actively engaged in designing and fabricating an innovative mechanism for trash collection in mobile robots. My responsibilities extend to conducting mechanical design, motion simulations, finite element analysis (FEA), and hands-on laboratory tasks, such as robot maintenance, development, and testing.

Prior to my role at IIT, I served as a Robotics Mechanical Engineer at the FUM Robotics Lab, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran, where I contributed to the design and simulation of parts for a Lower-Limb Rehabilitation Exoskeleton Robot, the mechanical design and dynamic analysis of a self-balancing robot, and the design and fabrication of an EMG sensor’s mechanical structure.

I also was employed as a Mechanical Design Engineer at the Urban Railway Company of Mashhad in Iran. In this role, I played a key part in the mechanical design of train switch machines and pantographs. Additionally, I was responsible for creating detailed production plans (DPP) for the train switch machines and pantograph parts.

I earned my bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Sadjad University of Technology (SUT), Mashhad, Iran. My thesis, titled "Robotic Non-destructive Inspection Using the Eddy Current Method," earned me a remarkable grade of 100%.

I have a wide range of skills in robot mechanics, including mechanical design, finite element method, motion simulation, and kinematics & dynamics analysis. My programming proficiency encompasses Python, MATLAB, and C++, while my adeptness with software includes Siemens NX, SOLIDWORKS, Ansys, AutoCAD, MATLAB & Simulink, and more.

I have also completed projects such as the design of a 2-Axis Robot for Robotic Non-Destructive Inspection, a 2-DOF Parallel Robot Motion Simulator, and an 8-Legged Robot inspired by the Theo Jansen Mechanism.
