Having a background in Electronics and Micro electro-mechanical systems, Majid has been working on Electro-mechanical transducers since 2010 when he joined the Micro-BioRobotics Center of IIT at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Italy. He received PhD in BioRobotics in 2014 with honor after delivering multiple smart materials, intelligent structures and systems for sensing and energy harvesting. He continued his post-doctoral research in IIT, focusing on Soft Tactile Sensors. Majid joined the University of Bristol on June 2016, exploring novel actuation technologies with an emphasis on safe human-machine interaction, and developed multiple electroactive artificial muscle technologies. He is now a senior research associate on EPSRC platform grant and pursues his interests in transducers, soft robotics, and smart materials/structures for healthcare applications.
