Dr Masoud S. Bahraini obtained his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Yazd University, Iran in 2018. From July 2019, Masoud Joined City University of London as Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Planetary Robotics Navigation and Decision Making, under supervision of Prof Nabil Aouf. He works in Robotics, Autonomy and Machine Intelligence (RAMI) laboratory, at School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
He has been also a research assistant at the Autonomous and Intelligence Systems Laboratory (AISL), Simon Fraser University, Surrey, BC, Canada from 2016 to 2017. He joined Sirjan University of Technology at Department of Mechanical Engineering, Sirjan, Iran, in January 2018 as an Assistant Professor. He received his B.S. degree from Shahid Bahonar University of Kerman, Kerman, Iran, in 2009; and M.Sc. degree from Shiraz University, Shiraz, Iran, in 2012, both in Mechanical Engineering.
His current research interests include autonomous and intelligent systems, robotics navigation and control.
