Roozbeh Bonyadi was born in Tehran, Iran in 1988. He received his B.Sc. in Electrical - Electronics from Shahed University of Tehran, Iran, in 2010. During his undergraduate, he was interested in robotics and built a line follower robot. He became the head of robotic group of the Shahed University in 2007 and taught Robotics independantly for two semesters in 2008-2009. Later, he becmae the head of Parsayan team in Iran Machine Design Competition (IMDC- desing and manufacturing of electrical vehicles) held by Sharif University of Technology and National Elite Students Organization in 2009. He undertook a project titled "Rescue Robot Algorithm with Ant Colony Optimization and Genetic Algorithm and Simulating it using MATLAB" as his B.Sc project.

In September 2010, he started M.Sc in Electronic Systems at the University of Warwick under supervision of Dr. Peter Jones. His M.Sc project was titled “Intelligent Diagnosis in Automotive Electronic Systems of Systems” which involved fault diagnosis of electronic networks systems (Controller Area Network) of Jaguar XF using DNA sequencing method. He gained the highest mark in the School of Engineering on his project. His MSc project resulted in a publication "A DNA Sequencing Based Approach to Fault Diagnosis in Automotive Electronic Networks”, in the Proceedings of the United Kingdom Automotive Control Council International conference (UKACC) in 2012.

In 2012 he started working as a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) associate (Research and Development Engineer) at the University of Wolverhampton in collaboration with Phoenix Calibration and Services Ltd. His interest in automotive industry and semiconductor devices led him to undertake a PhD in Power Electronics at the University of Warwick. His research is in the field of power switching modules and involves designing and packaging of a power converter under supervision of Prof. Philip Mawby. His research is funded by EPSRC and is in a close collaboration with Jaguar Land Rover team.
