BiographyMohammad joined Columbus State University as an assistant professor in 2021. Prior to joining CSU, Mohammad was a PhD student in the University of Nebraska – Lincoln we he worked on neuromorphic (neuro-inspired) computing in non-digital hardware components. His research has led him to the development of the first artificial intelligence-augmented micro-sensors, which can be used in novel robotic systems, such as soft and micro-robots. He also worked on AI in robotics, where he developed a voice-controlled wheel chair-mounted robotic arm.
My research interests lie in the areas of neuromorphic computing, complex dynamical systems, microsystems and human-machine interactions. My research interests are based on my experience with micro-sensors, colocalized sensing and computing and AI implementation in wheelchair-mounted robotic arms. My ongoing research is about the implementation of neuromorphic computing in robotic systems to facilitate human-in-the-loop control and more efficient edge-based multi-robot control.

My teaching interests cover a broad range of topics in the field of robotics, including the areas of engineering mechanics and design, machine learning, and sensors and actuators. My teaching philosophy focus on providing a comprehensive view of the topic at hand and how it fits in the context of robotics engineering and engineering in general in order to motivate my students. I also like to provide real-world examples and computer simulations to add more flavor to my classes.
