Back to top


Dr. Dadash Zadeh received his BSc from the University of Tabriz with 1st rank in 2005, and his MSc and PhD in 2007 and 2013 from the University of Tehran, all in Mechanical Engineering. His MSc thesis was on trajectory control of a mobile robot with experimental works and his PhD thesis was on dynamics and control of the running of biped robots. During PhD research, he worked 7 months at the University of Calgary as a visiting scholar on 2012. He developed stable and efficient running gaits using optimization. Then he attended Dynamic Robotic Laboratory of Oregon State University in USA for 6 months. He worked on ATRIAS robot for which he derived analytical and realistic dynamic model and designed a two level controller using force control and SLIP model tracking. He has been also a postdoctoral fellow at École nationale d'ingénieurs de Tarbes (ENIT) in France holding a scholarship from Campus France, doing research on robotic hand on 2019.

Dr. Dadash Zadeh has several years of experience of undergraduate and graduate level teaching and supervising more than 20 graduate students of mechatronics, mechanical and biomechanics engineering...



Dr. Dadashzadeh has excellent experience in analytical dynamic modeling and simulations and control of multibody systems. He has extensive research experience in the various mechatronic engineering fields including Dynamics and Control of Robots, Biped Walking and Running, Design of Mobile Robots, Musculoskeletal Biomechanics and Motion Analysis.
