Dr. Gholamreza Rouhi received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and Biomechanics, respectively, both from Sharif University of Technology, Iran. He pursued his career in Iran as a research Engineer, also as a lecturer where he has authored three books on physics prior to come to Canada for doing his doctoral studies. He was awarded his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, major in Biomechanics, from the University of Calgary for his investigations on bone remodelling and resorption theories using continuum mechanics and mixture theories. After earning his Ph.D., he started his new career as an assistant professor in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Ottawa, where he was cross-appointed in the School of Human Kinetics. In 2011, he came back to Iran, where he has been an assistant professor in the  Department of Biomedical Engineering at Amirkabir University of Technology ever since. Prof. Rouhi is actively involved in various research projects including: bone remodelling theories; bone-implant interactions and stress shielding; cell mechanics; nano-biomechanics; knee biomechanics; and biomechanics of femoro-acetabular impingement.
