Biography

  • B.Sc., Industrial Engineering (Industrial Production), Iran University of Science and Technology, 2005
  • M.Sc., Industrial Management (Operations and Production), Islamic Azad University (Iran), 2009
  • Ph.D., Industrial Engineering (Engineering Design Processes), Politecnico di Torino (Italy), 2015

Mohammad is currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Business and Design Process Modelling at the Engineering Design Centre (EDC) of Cambridge University where he is engaged in two industrial projects in collaboration with Rolls-Royce and British Telecom groups. Apart from that, Mohammad is appointed to be involved in the development team of the Cambridge Advance Modeller (CAM) software, being responsible for developing its new website, pre-release testing, and providing a general database.

Prior to that, he has been passed his PhD and a one-year Post-Doc in Politecnico di Torino (Italy) where he was awarded by the "European Fund for Regional Development" for development of a new process modelling methodology so-called "Actor-Based Signposting" (ABS), and consequently was appointed as a Product Development Consultant by STC, a consulting company in Product Design and Development Processes.

Mohammad is an Industrial Engineer with a considerable range of experiences come from years of working in Industry (as eg Production Manager, R&D Engineer, and Consultant in Process Improvement), and teaching roles (in the undergraduate courses such as Project Planning and Control, JIT and Lean Production Systems, and Theory of Probability and its Applications) in accredited universities.
