Dr. Mohamad Mosadeghzad is an assistant professor in in the Department of Robotics and Mechatronics at Nazarbayev University’s School of Science and Technology. He received his B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering, Solid Design from Bu-Ali Sina University, Hamedan, Iran. He pursued his study in the same University and received the M.Sc in Mechanical Engineering, Applied Design. His thesis topic and research interests in M.Sc. was dynamics modeling, stability and control of mobile robots and rovers. He continued his study in the Robotics and received a full scholarship from University of Genova to study Ph.D. in Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), Genova, Italy. In his Ph.D. he was part of the humanoids group of Advanced Robotics Department and was mostly involved in developing torque based control for CoMan humanoid including full body admittance and impedance controller and impedance based ankle torque stabilization strategy. After receiving Ph.D. he decided to explore the land of moose, Canada. In the new adventure of discovering this beautiful country he ended up doing Post-Doctoral research at University of Lethbridge in Cognitive Robotics lab of the Canadian Centre of Behavioral Neuroscience (CCBN). The post-Doctoral project was a collaboration between IIT and CCBN to improve the auditory scene analysis and hearing capability of humanoids, specifically iCup, based on the human brain circuitry.
