Welcome to my Home Page!

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada. I am currently working on PDE Backstepping observer and controller design for distributed parameter systems. I am developing a soft-sensor to accurately estimate the temperature inside a tiny 0.64 µL reaction chamber. Moreover, I am designing a tracking controller to control the temperature inside the chamber within ±1ºC just by actuating through a boundary far from the chamber. The outcomes of this research would help to enhance the DNA analysis devices performance which would have many benefits to point and care applications such as cancer screening.

I am developing this project under supervision of Professor Horacio J. Marquez. Beside the current research I gained experience in analysis and design of nonlinear control systems which was my major research subject during the M.Sc. program. I received my M.Sc. degree in Electrical engineering from the K.N.Toosi University of Technology, 2001, Tehran, Iran.

I originally came from Tabriz city located at north-western side of Iran, in a region known as Azerbaijan. Tabriz is a city with kind Turkish/Azeri speaking people, beautiful mountains, cold weather on winter and cool fresh weather at summer. I received my B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the Sahand University of Technology, 1998, Tabriz, Iran.
