Izadyar Tamadon is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering within the Faculty of Engineering Technology, University of Twente. Izad joined the Biomedical Device Design and Production Technology (BDDP) group since 2022.
The main focus of his current research is to use new techniques, new technologies, plus new ways of using existing methods to enhance comfort, accuracy and reliability in design of biomedical instruments. In his academic career, he has contributed to minimally invasive therapies and interventions with special focus on mechatronics design that shaped from collaborations with clinicians.
His passion and enthusiasm in this field initiated from a M.Sc. degree in Mechatronics engineering (IUST, Tehran, IRAN) and a PhD program in BioRobotics (SSSA, Pisa, ITALY). He continued the research journey for three years in the surgical robotics lab and regenerative technologies lab as a postdoctoral researcher.
Izad was an active member of several EU Horizon and Italian projects like ARTERY, FORGETDIABETES, BIOSUP, ROBOIMPLANT and VALVETECH. Those projects were related to innovative designs of flexible manipulators for cardiac interventions, implantable drug delivery devices and artificial mechatronics organs.
