Reihaneh Ostadian Bidgolireceived her bachelor’s degree (BSc) in Electrical Engineering from AmirKabir University (Tehran Polytechnic) in 2018. She Joined McMaster Automotive Resource Center (MARC) in Winter 2019. She works under the supervision of Professor Ali Emadi. Her research focus is on developing control systems for autonomous applications.
During Reihaneh’s high school, she held a particular interest in Mathematics and Physics, and they had an exceptional gravity that encouraged her to follow them in some extracurricular activities such as Physics Olympiad and Experimental Competitions. By participating in these activities, she became acquainted with topics that made her interested in attending a top university and learning some advanced materials about them. After a hard time of preparing for the National Universities Entrance Exam, she obtained a high mark and ranked 307 out of 300000 participants. Therefore, she had a wide choice to select a top-ranked university in any field that she wanted to peruse.
She entered the Electrical Engineering Department of Amirkabir University of Technology, which is one of the best universities in the nationwide and the first industrial university in Iran. After passing some courses such as “Linear Control Systems” and “Signals and Systems” and also finding out that control methods are one of the fundamental tools in every field, for instance, power systems, mechanical systems and even medical procedure she decided to choose Control Engineering as her major in electrical engineering.
As her passion and academic performance, she was chosen as a teaching assistant for the Linear Control systems. For her bachelor thesis, she decided to work on developing a control system to tolerate possible sensor and actuator faults in a heart surgery robot as her bachelor thesis. Through her bachelor thesis, she deeply attracted by robotics autonomous-capable vehicles and their associated technologies; therefore, she decided to do research work in this field.
She is currently pursuing her Master degree in Electrical Engineering at McMaster University under the supervision of Dr. Ali Emadi. She has joined the McMaster Automotive Resource Center (MARC) since 2019. Her works involve researching in the field of intelligent control systems.
