I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Automatic Control since Dec. 2011. I received a M.Sc. in Information Technology Engineering - Secure Telecom from Iran University of Science and Technology in 2007. I had worked for four years in telecom sector when I decided to indulge myself in further academic studies in 2009. Consequently, I started a master program in Robotics and Intelligent Systems in Örebro University. After a year, I joined LTH as a guest student where I took extra courses in control and software engineering. In addition, I carried out my thesis project under the joint supervision of the cerebellar neurophysiology group and the control department at Lund University, which led to my current position.

Research Interests

I appreciate the notion of developmental robotics, which aims to create intelligent robots by allowing them to go through a developmental process, rather than directly engineering the “intelligence.” It is interesting to investigate what initial control architecture and adaptive mechanisms are required for this purpose.
