‘Harvesting energy from human motions using multi-impact piezoelectric energy harvesters’
Research summary: Iman's research looks to convert human vibration to energy. A prototype is being designed that can generate continuous electricity from walking motion. Sustainable, 24/7 source of energy - even in storms, wars, earthquakes.
Iman Izadgoshasb is a PhD student at Southern Cross University, Lismore, working on piezoelectric energy harvesting from human motions, using high-tech smart materials. Essentially, Iman's research looks to convert human vibration to energy. He is currently working on a prototype designed to generate continuous electricity from walking motion, which would be a 24/7 source of energy - even during storms, wars and earthquakes.
Originally from Iran, Iman holds a Bachelor of Science degree, and honours degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Islamic Azzad University (2008). He also has five years industrial experience, designing solids and composite materials. Iman is eager to gain the knowledge and expertise that innovative programs such as Ignite offer, and in his spare time, enjoys professional photography and hiking.
