About ME

I received my BSc in mechanical engineering from Sharif University of technology (Tehran, Iran) in 2012. After completion of my degree, I started my MSc degree in mechanical engineering at the University of Alberta. My research interests focus on human balance during gait and risk of falling. I conduct my experimental studies in CAREN at Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital. In particular, my research focuses on finding the limits of stability using simulated computer models and comparing them with the actual human walking stability patterns.

My research project consists of two major parts: (i) develop a seven-segment biomechanical model of human body in the sagittal plane. This simulation-based model will be optimized to find the stability limits for the case of walking or standing. (ii) collecting perturbed and unperturbed gait data from stroke survivors and able-bodied individuals and using these data to find biomechanical biomarkers of gait stability. I use IMUs (inertial measurement units), motion-capture cameras and force plates in my experimental study.
