I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Mechanical Engineering in 2010 and 2012, respectively, from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), Iran. In 2014, I joined to Advanced Robotics Department, Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), and worked on the European project Walk-Man as a graduate researcher. Also, I was Research Assistant (RA) at System Dynamics and Control laboratory in Mechanical Engineering Department at Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic) from 2010 to 2014.

From September 2015, I started my Ph.D. via Joint Doctoral Program between University of California, San Diego and San Diego State University. I currently work on 14-DOF Baxter Robot in Dynamic Systems and Control Laboratory under the supervision of Dr. Peiman Naseradinmousavi, and Nonlinear and Adaptive Control laboratory under the supervision of Professor Miroslav Krstic.
