Shaghayegh Bagheri is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at George Mason University and an Affiliate Scientist at Toronto Rehabilitation Institute (Toronto, Canada). Prior to that, she was an assistant professor in the Department of Automotive, Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT).
Her research interests encompass advanced manufacturing technology of multi-functional materials capable of sensing and responding to different stimuli. Her primary research objective is to apply her knowledge and experience in biomechanics, material science, and advanced manufacturing techniques toward providing solutions for applications in the healthcare sector for rehabilitation, injury prevention, and treatment. She completed her PhD with a specific focus on solid mechanics as applied to composite biomaterials and orthopedic implants. Following her PhD, she continued to work on the design and development of advanced structure materials for healthcare-related applications. She worked as a postdoctoral fellow at McGill University (Montreal, Canada) and as a “Canadian Frailty Network Interdisciplinary” fellow at the iDAPT Centre of Rehabilitation Research at Toronto Rehabilitation Institute (Toronto, Canada), the largest academic adult rehab hospital in Canada and one of the world’s most advanced rehab research centers affiliated with the University of Toronto.
Bagheri received numerous honors and awards such as the Ontario Centres of Excellence, the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario, and Mitacs Accelerate. She was previously the guest editor of Bone and Tissue Regeneration Insights and a reviewer for several materials and biomedical engineering journals.
