Postdoctoral Fellow

Amir LajimiCurrently working in Motion Research Group at the University of Waterloo, I have studied and/or worked at the University of Waterloo, Simon Fraser University, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Laussane , and the University of Tehran. Fundamentally, I am interested in researching the linear and nonlinear motion of (rigid) bodies and (flexible) structures under deterministic and stochastic loads using analytical, numerical, and experimental methods of applied dynamics. Practically speaking, micro-/nano-electromechanical systems (M/NEMS), energy harvesting, and embedded systems particularly for sensing and energy scavenging applications constitute the basis of my research activities.


A list of my publications is available on Google Scholar.
