About Me

Soroush Sadeghnejad received a B.Sc in Mechanical Engineering in 2009 from Amirkabir University of Technology with a top rank and also second years later, his M.Sc in Mechanical Engineering in the former university. From then, he has started his PhD. at Sharif University of Technology. He is currently research associate and lecturer at Amirkabir Robotic Institute of Amirkabir University of Technology. He is also working on projects in the Amirkabir Robotic Center in two teams, Humanoid and Medical Robotic Labs as a head. His previous research interests was Elasticity, Viscoelasticity, Pressure Vessels, Plates and Shell, Finite Element Method, Impact Mechanics, Impact on Composite Structures, Mechanics of Composite Material, Vibration of Plates and Shells and now he is focusing on Medical and Surgery robotics, haptic and control especially on the field of Mobile Robots, Human-like Robots, Robotic and Automation and RoboCup. He built up three RoboCup teams at Amirkabir University of Technology and works currently as their coordinator. Furthermore, he coordinates the RoboCup activities in Iran. He published several papers in journals, conferences and symposiums. He has organized a number of workshops and other scientific events and is very active in the RoboCup community. He was a member of the ASME and ISME and now he is the member of IEEE Robotics and Automation society and the Robotics society of Iran. Moreover, he is now appointed as the Executive Committee (EC) member of International RoboCup Federation by the board of Trustees and also serve as an Organizing Committee (OC) and Technical Committee (TC) Member of International RoboCup Federation in humanoid robot league and cooperating with Iranian National RoboCup Committee (INRC) as a technical and executive committee member.
