I was born in 1988 in Mashhad, Iran. I earned my B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from Ferdowsi University and my M.Sc. in Machine Automation with the major in Mechatronics and Micromachines from Tampere University of Technology in Finland. The focus of my master’s thesis was on the design, modeling and control of a test rig for cylindrical grinding.

Research Interests

I am currently pursuing my doctoral study in the area of Modeling and Precision Control of Ball Screw Drives under supervision of Dr. Kaan Erkorkmaz. My research interests include control of systems with friction and vibration control in machine tools.

Hobbies and Activities

In my spare time I do sports like running, cycling and swimming. I also enjoy cooking new recipes.
