Dr. Mehrandezh received his Ph.D. and M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Toronto, and the Queens University in 1999 and 1995, respectively. He is currently an associate professor in the Industrial Systems Engineering program at the University of Regina, Canada. Mehrandezh’s research revolves around robotics, machine vision, and control. A pipe crawling robot co-invented by him was highlighted in the Popular Mechanics magazine as one of the 5 high-tech fixes to infrastructures in 2009. He also holds a patent on “design and development of an adaptable climbing machine”. Mehrandezh is a member of IEEE and served as the vice-president of the IEEE (south Saskatchewan section) for two consecutive terms. He is also a registered professional engineer (P. Eng.) in Canada.
