About me

Behzad Danaei

I am a PhD student at the University of Waterloo, in the Department of Systems Design Engineering and a Research Assistant at the Motion Research Group. I completed my MSc in Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Tehran, Iran, where I also spent three years as a graduate researcher at the Human and Robot Interaction Laboratory (known as TaarLab for its Persian abbreviation).

In general, I enjoy working on problems related to robotics and biomechatronics, especially when they involve system modeling, control design, and programming.
