Mostafa Ghobadi
PhD Candidate
Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering
University at Buffalo, State University of New York
Human in the Loop Systems Lab
    I am a PhD candidate at Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department of University at Buffalo, SUNY. Since 2013 that I joined HILS (Human In the Loop Systems) laboratory, I've been working on  Signal Processing, Sensor Fusion, Activity Recognition, and System Identification of Biomedical and Neurological and Mechanical Systems.
    I have gleaned lots of research experiences as well as many hands-on technical skills such as software development and mechatronics expertise throughout various practical projects I've been involved in .

Professional Experience (click for more details and projects)
Persia Humanoid Robot
Simulation of dynamics and control of complex systems
- Modeling and simulation of the multibody dynamics as well as a realistic contact model of the foot-ground interactions of bipedal robots equipped with sensors and actuators.
- Optimization of the parameters of a proposed 2D and 3D trajectory planning for a stable walking based on ZMP criteria.
Implementation of stable walking trajectory on the robot
- Conceptual and detailed design of the robot in three months and manufacturing of the robot in three months
- After
only two weeks from the day assembled, the robot could stably walk!
