As a father of a three-year-old little girl, there is nothing that Abbas enjoys more than flying his Mini-Drones with his little princess who must have inherited this passion from her dad. Abbas pursued his early interest in Aerial Robots by obtaining a diploma in Mechanical Engineering, followed by a Master of Science and a PHD in Automatic Control. He worked as a postdoctoral fellow in both France and Canada between 2007 and 2015. He joined ARA Robotique in 2015 as a Control and Aerial Navigation Expert to share his knowledge, passion and experience with the talented and enthusiastic team of ARA. Abbas is a member of the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute (CASI) and an Associate Editor of the International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems.
