Short CV

I obtained my B.Sc degree in Aerospace Engineering and M.Sc degree in Control and Flight Dynamics respectively in September 2012 and 2014, both from Aerospace Engineering department, Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. My master thesis was on the topic of modeling, stability analysis and controller design for an insect-like flapping wing in hover flight. After my graduation, I had the opportunity to work on the development of a bio-inspired flapping wing robot at Active Structures Laboratory of Universite Libre de Bruxelles. I had also a six-month internship at Learning Algorithms and System Laboratory in EPFL, working on the stability and trajectory generation for humanoid robots. I have a great experience of working on the project of A320 flight simulator development at Shahin Aviation Technology (Tehran). I spent about one year in Shahin, where I was mainly responsible for the autopilot and controller design and assessment of flying quality.


My research interest has focused mainly on flight mechanics, flight simulation and advanced control methods for aerial vehicles. In my PhD research, I am working in the field of robust flight control system design for rotorcraft in order to improve the safety of operation close to the obstacles.
