Khalil Alipour received his B.S., M.S. and PhD degrees all with honors in Mechanical Engineering from K. N. Toosi University of Technology in 2002, 2004 and 2010, respectively. Currently, he is a visiting scholar and postdoc research associate at Kettering University as well as an Associate Professor with the Faculty of New Sciences and Technologies at University of Tehran. He teaches courses in the areas of robotics, dynamics, automatic control, analysis and synthesis of mechanisms. At Kettering University, he has focused on nonlinear modeling of elastomer bushings. His work includes modeling of bushings at both static and dynamic levels as well as, offline parameter estimation of the developed models.
His research interests are in the areas of modeling and simulation, automatic control, motion/path planning of robotic systems and tip-over stability analysis of mobile robots. He has published various articles in international journals and conference proceedings.
