Farhad Javid is a Principal Research Scientist in the complex system group at Autodesk. His research aims at the design, modeling, and optimization of constrained mechanical systems and structures.
Prior to joining Autodesk, he worked as a mechanical design engineer at Carbon3D, and held postdoctoral positions at MIT and Harvard. Farhad has published in high-impact journals such as Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, and Scientific Reports and has co-invented 6 US Patents. He has designed periodic structures with exceptional properties such as negative Poisson’s ratio and strong wave attenuation for application in gas turbine engines. Farhad has also developed prolonged drug release systems for oral delivery and 3D printed lattice structures for medical and protective devices.
Farhad’s hobbies include hiking, running, and playing soccer, squash, and tennis. He also enjoys spending time with his friends and family and listening to music in his free time.
