About Me

The modern idea of robotics has introduced as the development of the Industrial Revolution has begun. During the past century, while technology advancement in manufacturing has happened and novel innovations in automation have gained more importance, the processes to develop a fully automated robot-based manufacturing system have gained more attention and gotten more sophisticated. Recent innovations in my field of research and teaching such as Cyber Physical Systems (CPS), Cloud Computing, 3D Printing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Big Data and Digital Twins that are making big changes in the industry and personally they keep me motivated and excited for future. 

From another angle, the opportunities to teach and work with students and to develop new educational materials and techniques are my primary motivation to follow an academic career. My academic background, teaching experience, and my long career as an Engineer in automotive industry make me well-prepared and interested to teach and the most important thing that we can teach our students is that “robotics” is interesting, relevant, and fun.
