Assistive and Rehabilitation Robotics, Autonomous Human-Robot Interaction, and Wearable and Soft Robotics Export this event to calendar

Wednesday, February 23, 2022 — 10:00 AM to 11:15 AM EST

Research seminar 

In this talk, Dr. Mojtaba Sharifi will go over the research projects he has done in the field of Rehabilitation and Assistive Robotics, Human-Robot Interaction (HRI), and Soft Robotics in the past twelve years. His presentation is organized in three sections, which cover his research achievements from his MSc to Postdoc. The first one is devoted to his research area during the MSc and Ph.D. programs on the “Control of HRI: Medical Robotic and Tele-Robotic Systems”. After that, he will talk about his recent contribution made on the “Design and Development of Exoskeletons with Soft Components for Safe HRI”, with biomedical and industrial applications. The third part of this presentation is dedicated to his research projects on the “Interaction Learning and Autonomy for Assistive and Rehabilitation Robots”.  Throughout this presentation, the theoretical and experimental aspects of these studies will be elaborated on.

Speaker biography 

Mojtaba Sharifi is an assistant professor of Mechanical Engineering at San Jose State University, California, US. He was a Research Scientist jointly affiliated with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the Department of Medicine at the University of Alberta (UofA) from 2019 to 2021, Canada, and was the recipient of a postdoctoral fellowship award. Prior to joining UofA, he was a Research Associate at the University College London, UK, in 2019.
