Mr Hashem Yousefi
BSc Univ. Tehran, MSc Amirkabir Univ. Technology
Hashem Yousefi (Alamooti) received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Tehran. He continued his study to complete a Master of Science in Medical Engineering - Biomechanics at Amirkabir University of Technology.
Hashem's masters involved working on the impedance control of a MRI compatible assistant surgery robot for needle placement. He then became a Master of Science researcher in the Motion Analysis Laboratory of Iran's Center of Excellence in Biomedical Engineering. Hashem came to New Zealand in 2014, to commence a doctorate in Bioengineering with the Auckland Bioengineering Institute.

How does the heart grow?
This project will contribute to the Marsden project’s aim which is to understand how cardiac morphogenesis is driven by genetic programmes that are responsive to signals from tissue stress fields, and, more generally, to provide a foundation for the eventual prediction of the phenotypic consequences of gene mutations on development in all organs.
Hashem's research is supported by the Marsden Grant ‘How does the heart grow?’.
Postgraduate Representative, Auckland Bioengineering Institute PI Group.
