I am interested in the understanding, modeling, and control of complex engineering and natural systems. I am a member of Flight Physics Department at Joby Aviation, Santa Cruz, California. Prior to joining Joby, I was a researcher at the University of California, Berkeley. I received my Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering, specializing in chaotic dynamics, from the Sharif University of Technology, and was a post-doctoral fellow at Florida State University where I worked on various problems in kinetic theory, N-body systems, and galactic dynamics. I have held faculty and research positions at the Sharif University of Technology, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris, Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences, Zanjan, and Leiden University in the Netherlands. My research centers on developing the science and technology of the dense operations of eVTOL vehicles for Urban Air Mobility (UAM), optimal and nonlinear control, dynamics of planetary systems, and galactic dynamics. Our research on swimming micro-robots and their collaborative flocks received the National Science Foundation (NSF) grant.
