Dr. Mehran Mazandarani received a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering, control field, from the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. As a researcher, he joined the Computational Mathematics and Engineering Division, Ton Duc Thang University, Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam, during 2017-2018. Then, at the Harbin Institute of Technology, Shenzhen, China, he worked as a visiting researcher during 2018-2019.
Subsequently, as a Postdoctoral Researcher, Dr. Mazandarani has joined the Department of Information Sciences and Technology, Tsinghua University, China. His interests fall within some branches of fuzzy logic. He has elaborated on using fuzzy mathematics in control theory and introduced new frameworks in this regard. In fuzzy mathematics, he has introduced, for the first time, the type-2 fuzzy differential equations and type-2 fractional fuzzy differential equations - type-2 fuzzy calculus. By presenting the concept of granular differentiability of fuzzy number-valued functions, he revolutionized fuzzy differential equations.
In 2019, Dr. Mazandarani made a firm framework for studying a class of differential equations called Z-differential equations and presented the outline of Z-calculus. He has recently introduced a new generation of fuzzy inference systems called fractional fuzzy inference systems, which outperform all the typical fuzzy inference systems. By this achievement, a new branch in fuzzy inference systems has been created. His current research work focuses on the foundation principles of fuzzy logic, fractional fuzzy inference systems, computing with perceptions, and their potential applications in intelligent systems.
