About

Navvab completed his undergraduate studies in Mechanical Engineering, and earned a first class honors master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Babol University of Technology in 2011 with the thesis titled “Time-Optimal Control of Redundant Manipulators and Mobile Robots”. He joined the Advanced Robotics Department at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), and received his Ph.D. degree in Robotics from University of Genoa in April 2015 with the dissertation entitled “Control and Modeling of Compliant Joint Robots equipped with Variable Impedance Mechanisms”.  Since then, he has been working in the Humanoid & Human Centred Mechatronics (HHCM) group, focusing on the mechatronics development and control of torque-controlled robotic systems. His research interests include modeling, simulation and control of variable impedance joint robots with the focus on friendly physical human-robot interaction, as well as design and development of compliant modules and sensors. He has been serving as a reviewer for high ranked international journals such as T-MECH, T-ASE, T-RO and RAS and international conferences such as ICRA, IROS and RSS.
