Bab-Hadiashar works in areas of computer vision, intelligent automation and mechatronics design. He started his academic journey as a postdoctoral research fellow at Monash University, followed by a teaching and research position at Swinburne University of Technology, where he was promoted to the Associate Professor role in 2004. In 2009, he had the opportunity to work at the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) for a year, conducting research in the biomedical imaging area. Since joining RMIT in 2011 as a Professor of Mechatronics, he has had ample opportunities to engage in academic and applied research and has successfully played significant roles in discipline leadership, research management, establishment of autonomous and intelligent automation research groups as well as teaching and program leadership.
Bab-Hadiashar is currently leading the Intelligent Automation Research Group at the School of Engineering at RMIT University. He is program manager for the Master of Robotics and Mechatronics Engineering program. He has been very fortunate with research facilities and mentorship early in his career. His PhD was undertaken at Monash University at the Intelligent Robotic Research Centre, under the supervision of late Prof. Ray Jarvis and Prof David Suter, who has remained a wonderful mentor to this day.
Bab-Hadiashar has been designing, developing and applying significant and ubiquitous data analysis concepts for over two decades to improve the economy, environment, and health. His latest industry related project, in which he is the main CI, links experts in the fields of i4.0, automated machine vision, AI, structural mechanics and materials science with Ford Australia and USA. The collaborative effort is aimed at improving the design and quality control of new joining techniques, which are essential for lightening of the complex structures including new types of vehicles.
