About Hossein Habibi

Hossein Habibi

Hossein Habibi
Senior Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering, School of Science, Engineering & Design
T: 01642 342483
Research: Science, Engineering and Design research

Dr Hossein Habibi received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Isfahan University of Technology and Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz respectively. He accomplished his PhD study at University College Dublin on dynamics and control of flexible mechanical systems in 2013. Hossein then joined Brunel Innovation Centre (BIC) in TWI Company in Cambridge as a Research Fellow and the project leader of two European funded projects, mainly focused on the areas of ultrasonic guided waves and low frequency vibration. In 2016, he joined the Faculty of Engineering in the University of Nottingham as a Research Associate where he carried on his research in the field of continuum soft robotics. Since February 2018, Hossein is a Senior Lecturer at Teesside University.
