Hamed Rajabi was among the top 1% of 399321 participants in Iran’s national entrance examination of universities (Konkoor), in 2003. He received full scholarship from the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology of Iran to pursue his BSc (2007), MSc (2010) and PhD (2016) in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Guilan, which is among the world top 300 universities in the subject area Mechanical Engineering. He was selected as the distinguished student during all the mentioned programs.
From 2010 to 2014, He worked as the Dean of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Ahrar Institute of technology & Higher Education. In 2011, he established his research team, known as the “Biomimetic Engineering group”.
In 2014, by financial support of German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), he joined the Functional Morphology & Biomechanics at Kiel University (Prof. Stanislav Gorb’s group), as a visiting researcher. Later in 2016, after completing his first PhD, he received a scholarship from the Federal State Schleswig-Holstein to start his second PhD in Science in the same group, working on the complex structure of insect cuticle. He defended his doctoral dissertation with “distinction” on January 2019. Since then, he is working as Postdoctoral Researcher at Kiel University.
Hamed Rajabi is the author of more than 60 journal and conference articles. He has won several national and international awards. He is also regularly invited as the reviewer of multiple international journals.
His research mainly focuses on the mechanics of high-performance, light-weight biological composites and biomimetic applications for technology.
