I am Majid Salehi and I was born in Najafabad/Isfahan from Iran on December 22, 1989. I was awarded a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering in the field of Manufacturing and Production from the Islamic Azad University of Majlesi. Due to my passionate interest in Biomedical Engineering, I selected an undergraduate project entitled “Design and Optimization Assistive Mobility Devices Focusing on Smart Walkers” under the supervision of Dr. Akbar Hojati and I graduated with a high score. During my undergraduate program, I learned several mechanical engineering designs and analysis software (Solidworks, Abaqus), and currently, I teach Solidworks course at Isfahan Academic Center for Education, Culture, and Research IUT Branch (ACECR).
In 2018, I received my Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Islamic Azad University of Najafabad, in which I have acquired an overall GPA of 18.47 out of 20. Because of my interest in Biomedical engineering, I attended some training seminars, making me attracted to the MEMS research field which is an interdisciplinary field. After reading several articles, and given the great challenge of adhesion in Micro/Nano dimensions, I did my thesis entitled “Experimental Study of the Effect of Compound Material Deposition by Magnetron Sputtering Method on Adhesion Forces of Micro Surfaces”, which offered a novel idea for the compound materials layering, and I investigated its adhesion level to make a medical Micro-Gripper sample with very low adhesion for cell manipulation and surgery.
I succeeded to defend it with the highest score. I also registered my other invention namely “Designed and Fabricated Electro-Thermal Micro Gripper with Less Adhesive Surfaces” with the support of Dr. Mojtaba Kolahdoozan. In this period, I got familiar with MEMS equipment and laboratory, including AFM, SEM, and equipment for manufacturing and testing materials such as Nano-indentation and material manufacturing furnaces like VAR. Afterward, I participated in the training workshops of “Fabrication of magnetic fluid based on Hydrophilic Magnetic Nano-particles” and “Theoretical and practical training of the use of a 3D-Printer in Bioengineering and Tissue Engineering” and various workshops covering the core subjects in biotechnology such as micro/Nanofluids and their special features, the art of biosensor design, Lab On a Chip, and applications of 3D printing in biomedical and tissue engineering as well as by taking part in various online courses I acquired another body of knowledge related to the medicine domain.
My fields of research in which currently I am interested in are:
MicroFluidic, MicroSensor, Coating, Surface Science, Adhesion Force
Impact and Injury Biomechanics:
Collision, Bone Injuries, Injury Protection, Energy Absorption
Design and Analysis, Manufacturing & Machining Process
