Sina is an experienced roboticist whose research develops new robotic solutions to human safety and access problems in industrial operations.

Sina leads robotics research at the Royal College of Art. He holds a PhD in Robotics from the University of Bristol where he worked on monolithic design of flexible actuators for operation in confined liquid environments, an MSc in Control Systems from the University of Sheffield, and a BSc in Electrical Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran.

Dr Sareh's latest projects include " Multi-vendor Interoperability in Robotics and Autonomous Systems Proving Grounds"; exploring how a diverse portfolio of robots can work together seamlessly within a proving ground ecosystem, funded by EPSRC via UK-RAS Network, and "Intelligent Medicine Warehousing" funded by InnoHK.

Since joining the RCA in 2017, Dr Sareh have been the principal investigator on a number of successfully completed externally-funded research projects including his EPSRC Fellowship on "Getting a Grip"; advanced anchoring modules for robot mobility & manipulation in unstructured environments, "Haptic Illusion"; a programmable medical training interface which dynamically mimics the feeling of touching human internal organs, "Topographies of Pain"; a soft robotic technology that assists people to articulate their symptoms when they are in pain"; "Reminisys"; a wearable technology that can help people with dementia manage and minimise the disease's impact in their daily lives by reminding them of people/objects and places. Dr Sareh was a co-investigator (RCA PI) on MIMRee; Multi-platform Inspection, Maintenance and Repair in Extreme Environment funded by Innovate UK under the Robotics for a Safer World programme.

Prior to his appointment at the College, Dr Sareh contributed to several high-profile research projects including the EPSRC-funded project Aerial ABM (Aerial Additive Building Manufacturing) at Imperial College London, the EU FP7 STIFF-FLOP (STIFFness Controllable Flexible & Learnable Manipulator for Surgical Operations) at King’s College London, and AAOSN (Adaptive Autonomous Ocean Sampling Networks) at the University of Exeter.

Dr Sareh served as an impact assessor of Sub-panel 12: Engineering in the assessment phase of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021. He is a member of the editorial board at IET Cyber-physical Systems and Robotics Journal, and a member of the EPSRC Peer Review College.
