Professor M. Shishesaz was graduated from University of Lowell in 1979 with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering during which he remained on the dean’s least as an outstanding student. He got his Master of Science degree in the same field in 1981. Four years later, he graduated as a Ph.D. student from Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, specializing in stress analysis of composite materials. He worked for five years as a lecturer at the same place followed by serving as a guest assistant professor at K. N. Toosi University of Technology and University of Science and Technology up to 1994 (in the Islamic Republic of Iran). He joined the Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz in the same year as an assistant professor and is currently working as a tenure track professor at this university. He is the author of more than 165 research journal and conference papers and two Iranian patents. He has also served as a consultant for many industries, working with the Steel Company, Sugar and Cane Company, domestic Gas Company, and a few other power plant industries, as well as a chief researcher and coordinator of nine industrial projects. His job experience includes the assistant dean of mechanical engineering department, head of solid mechanics division, deputy of research (college of engineering), former Editor of Pajoohesh research magazine, member of the Editorial Board, Journal of Applied and Computational Mechanics. He has been the main advisor for more than 65 graduate and postgraduate students. His fields of interest are stress analysis of mechanical elements and composites, finite element, analysis of MEE and MEM energy harvesters, and behavior of micro/nanostructures. He is currently working on the structural behavior of nano-disks based on stress-gradient, strain-gradient, and stress-strain gradient theories.
