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. 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 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 Biology in the same group, working on the complex structure of insect cuticle. 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 areas are Biomimetics, Functional Morphology, Insect Flight, and Mechanical Behaviour of Biological Structures.
