Mohammad Habibur Rahman (Senior Member, IEEE) is an Associate Professor with the Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering Department, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, WI, USA. As Director of the BioRobotics Lab at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, he brings the resources and expertise of an interdisciplinary R&D team. For more than 15 years, he has been researching mechatronics/robotics with emphasis on the design, development, and control of wearable robots, collaborative robots, and mobile robots. He received a BSc Engineering (Mechanical) degree from Khulna University of Engineering & Technology, Bangladesh in 2001, a Master of Engineering (bio-robotics) degree from Saga University, Japan in 2005, and a PhD in Engineering (bio-robotics) from École de technologie supérieure (ETS), Université du Québec, Canada in 2012. He worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Physical & Occupational Therapy, McGill University (2012–2014). His research interests are in bio-robotics, exoskeleton robot, intelligent system and control, mobile robotics, nonlinear control, control using biological signals such as electromyogram signals. Dr. Rahman has served as a Guest Editor/Associate Editors and on the editorial board of several journals, including Frontiers in Robotics and AI: Biomedical Robotics. He has published 100+ technical papers in renowned journals and international conferences in his area of interest.

I can offer...

I can offer research opportunities in Robotics, Rehab/Assistive Robotic, Control, Digital Twin, Augmented/Mixed Reality. I will be happy to share my experience/learning from NSF: I-Corps program on Customer discovery; and develop an Entrepreneurial Mindset Project-based course curriculum for an Undergraduate and Graduate course.
