Engineer. Inquisitive. Chess patzer.#
Amir is a PhD candidate at the School of Cybernetics. Before joining the 3Ai’s 2020 Masters cohort, Amir worked as an engineer with over 5 years of experience in the fields of robotics, medical systems, and automotive technologies. He also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and a Master of Science degree in Control Theory. Amir has been involved in the design and development of robots, exoskeletons, and advanced driver assistance systems, which helped him to grasp the challenges of developing cyber-physical systems in the real world. With an open mind to learning theoretical frameworks outside his disciplinary origins, he always looks for possible directions to solve real-world problems. Amir’s current research focuses on developing performance evaluation frameworks for human-machine collaborations in healthcare. During his Masters, Amir developed a webcam-based rehabilitative game for kids with Cerebral Palsy, exploring ways in which gamification and human-centred design can be used to promote health and well-being.
