Education :

2012 Ph.D. Medical Robotics, Sorbonne Université, Paris, France Dissertation: «Dexterous Serial Comanipulation for Minimally Invasive Surgery», Advisor: Prof. Jérôme Szewczyk 2007 M.Sc. Electrical Engineering, Ecole Nat. Sup. d'Electronique et de ses Applications, Cergy, France Dissertation: «Reliability of RoHS Electronics in Harsh Environments», Advisor: Prof. Mohammed Djemai 2005 B.S. Electrical Engineering, Isfahan University of Technology, Iran

Relevant Work Experience :

Dr. Ali Hassan Zahraee received B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Isfahan University of Technology, Isfahan, Iran, in 2005, and the Diplôme d'Ingénieur and M.S. degrees, in 2007, respectively, in Control Engineering and Power Electronics from the École Nationale Supérieure de lÉlectronique et de ses Applications, Cergy, France, and in Electronics from the University of Cergy-Pontoise, Cergy. In 2012, he recieved Ph.D. degree in Mechatronics from Sorbonne Université (formerly Université Pierre et Marie Curie - Paris 6) where he developed a robotic hand-held instrument for laparoscopic surgery. The device was later commercialized by EndoControl Medical, a French start-up as the first 5 mm robotic instrument for laparoscopy. Since then, he has worked in the fields of medical device development, robotics, and embedded systems in industry and academia, in France, UK, and Iran.
