Recent publications


Abolfazl Mohebbi obtained his bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Isfahan University of Technology (IUT), Iran, in 2009. He received a Master's degree from Concordia University (2013) and a Doctorate degree from Polytechnique Montreal (2017) both in in Mechanical Engineering with the specializations in robotics, control and mechatronics.

After holding industrial positions for almost three years, he returned to the academia as a postdoctoral researcher until 2020. As a postdoctoral fellow at Polytechnique, McGill and Harvard University, his research activities were focused on various fields of Biomedical Engineering, Neuromuscular Control, Assistive Technologies and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Abolfazl Mohebbi is now an Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Polytechnique Montréal. He also holds the Chair in Assistive and Rehabilitation Technologies, co-founded by the TransMedTech Institute (iTMT) of Polytechnique Montréal, the CHU Sainte-Justine research center and the Technopole in Pediatric Rehabilitation.
