Amoozandeh Nobaveh, Ali

Ali Amoozandeh is a PhD researcher in Mechatronic Systems Design group at Delft University of Technology. His research focuses on the design of spatial compliant mechanisms with specific force-deflection behavior. The application of these mechanisms ranges from exoskeletons to precision systems. Ali started his PhD project at the precision and microsystems engineering department in June 2019 after obtaining his master degree in Mechanical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology. He has worked on a handful of robotics and machine design projects before starting his PhD. Currently, He is doing his research under the supervision of Giuseppe Radaelli and Just L. Herder.
