Dr Majid Taghavi
Area of research
Majid Taghavi received his B.Sc in Electronic Engineering from K.N.Toosi University of Technology, Tehran, Iran in 2006. He then continued his studies on Design of Analog Integrated Circuit in Tabriz University, Iran in 2009, concentrating his research on MEMS area. He joined the Micro-BioRobotics center of IIT in Nov 2010, pursuing his graduate studies at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa, Italy, where he worked on Energy harvesting systems and Self-Powered Devices. He received Ph.D. degree in BioRobotics with honor on Oct 2014, and continued his research in the Micro-BioRobotics center of IIT as a PostDoc, focusing on Soft Tactile Sensors. Majid has been in University of Bristol since June 2016 working as Research Associate in wearable soft robotics for independent living. He is interested in soft robotics, wearable assistive devices, smart materials/structures and energy harvesting.
