New Additions to the Quanser Engineering Team

Quanser is proud to announce the recent addition of three new engineers to its team.  All three bring distinct but overlapping skills to our engineering design group.

Gilbert Lai has spent the past 10 years as an applications engineer, software developer and systems and control engineer. He holds a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo, where he specialized in Controls, Robotics and Aerospace (UAVs). His focus at Quanser is in robotics and systems engineering. For the past several years Gilbert has been a mentor for the SWAT771 FIRST Robotics team from St. Mildred's-Lightbourn School in Oakville, Ontario.

Amir Haddadi has been involved in professional R & D in academia and industry for the past seven years. A graduate of Queen’s University, Amir holds a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering, with a focus on Robotics and Controls. Amir’s areas of special interest include teleoperation systems, haptic interfaces and human-robot interaction.

Safwan Choudhury earned a MASc. in Electrical Engineering, Systems and Controls (Robotics) at the University of Waterloo. An experienced software engineer, Safwan has worked with such diverse institutions as the Canadian Department of National Defence, General Motors and Arista Networks.

With a large number of new and ongoing projects underway, Quanser is already enjoying the benefits of Gilbert, Amir and Safwan’s skills. Welcome aboard, gentlemen!
