Engineer. Adaptable. 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 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 flying robots, exoskeletons, and advanced driver assistance systems which helped him to grasp the challenges of developing cyber-physical systems in the real world. Here at 3Ai, with an openness to learn theoretical frameworks outside his disciplinary origins, he looks for connections and possible new directions to pursue. 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. Amir is currently investigating the challenges of using AI-enabled cyber-physical systems for medical monitoring from a safety perspective.
