    • Biography

    • Mohammad Bidakhvidi received his bachelor and master degree in industrial engineering electromechanics from the University of Antwerp, in 2007. He received the master degree in mechanical-electrotechnical engineering in 2009 from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering, where he worked as a doctoral researcher (IWT) in the Acoustics and Vibrations Research Group (AVRG). His academic research had a multidisciplinary character and involved both computational and experimental analysis of the fluid-structure interaction of piezoelectric resonating flapping wings. Mohammad received the PhD degree in mechanical engineering in 2014.
