Personal profile


Dr Rastegarpanah is a senior researcher in robotics working at the Faraday Institution/University of Birmingham. Dr Rastegarpanah is currently leading the robotic team working on a project called "Reuse and Recycling of Lithium-ion batteries (RELIB)" with a focus on automating the process of disassembly and testing the electrical Vehicle (EV) batteries using advanced robotics and AI techniques.

After receiving his MSc and PhD in robotics from the University of Birmingham, he pursued his research interests by joining the Extreme Robotics Laboratory (ERL), as a Research Fellow, in 2016. He worked on an EPSRC project called “Machine-learning of vision-guided bi-manual grasps, for adaptable autonomous manipulation in manufacturing environments”. In 2017 he started working as Research Fellow with the Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology at the University College London (UCL) and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.

Dr Rastegarpanah returned to the Extreme Robotics Lab in 2018 to work on RELIB project funded by the Faraday Institution. He is actively involved in applied robotics projects with the industry. Currently, Dr Rastegarpanah has funded collaborations with manufacturing industries and automotive insurance groups.
