Dr Mehdi Hendijanizadeh is Research Fellow in Electromechanical Engineer within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Mehdi is a Bachelor of Science in Electronic Engineering and Master of Science in Power-Electronic Engineering. His BSc project aim was to improve voice quality by signal processing method. His MSc was also involved in developing a control driver based on fuzzy sliding mode control to adjust the position of DC motor. After two years in industry, Mehdi joined the Electro-Mechanical engineering group of university of Southampton as a PhD candidate in 2009. He conducted his research on harvesting energy from low frequency, large scale ambient vibrations. His research during PhD years led to the design and manufacture of some energy harvesting prototypes including a ball screw based energy harvester to extract power from vertical movement of a boat or buoyant.

Now he is a research fellow at the Electromechanical group within the faculty of Engineering and the Environment at the University of Southampton. His current research is to analyse and develop nonlinear vibration energy harvesting systems, and consider their applications in different domains. The aim is to use nonlinearity to improve the performance and dynamic range of energy harvesters under a variety of excitation conditions. The work involves both theoretical analysis of these nonlinear dynamic systems and the design and testing of experimental devices.
