AMMCS Kolmogorov-Wiener Prize for
Dr. Hassanpour (University of Waterloo) for his work on theory and
applications of nonlinear vibrations.
Pezhman Hassanpour received his PhD from the University of Toronto
in 2008. After his graduation, Dr. Hassanpour joined the University of
Waterloo where he held an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship. His research contributions include mathematical and numerical analysis of
micro-electro-mechanical and micro-opto-electro-mechanical systems such
as sensors and resonators. Dr. Hassanpour has been instrumental in
analyzing such systems with deterministic and stochastic mathematical
models in energy harvesting applications, biomedicine, health and food
industries. His current research interests include also the development of
nanotechnology-enabled optical biosensors, nonlinear systems dynamics
and control. At the time of the award he has published five papers in
high quality international journals and six conference proceedings.
