About PI

I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Florida. I am mainly conducting research on both mm-Wave/THz high data rate communication and sensing in addition to the security and connectivity of the next generation of distributed Internet-of-Things (IoT) network. I was a Post Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Michigan- Ann Arbor from 2017 to 2020.  I earned my PhD from the University of California, San Diego in June 2017, with an emphasis on enabling high data rate and scalable mm-wave phased array for the next generation of smart wireless world. I received my MS degree, with highest honors, from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnique) in 2011, with thesis emphasize on low-power low-resolution electronic interface for capacitive sensor interface. I received my BS degree from Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran, Iran, in 2009, with the highest honor, awarded me university fellowship for graduate studies.

 I received the 2021 DARPA Young Faculty Award (YFA). I am a member of IEEE Solid-State Circuits and IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques societies. I am recipient of PhD Endowed Graduate Fellowship from UC-SanDiego (2012-2013) and U-M Departmental Postdoctoral Fellowship (2017-2019). I served as the vice-chair of IEEE Southeastern Michigan for Microwave Theory and Techniques Chapter where I am awarded MTT-s Travel Grant (2019). I am selected as 2019 EECS Rising Star by MIT launched RisingStars program and 2020 ISSCC Rising Star by IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society. I am a member of the Microwave and Mm-Wave Integrated Circuits committee (MTT-14) and serve in the IMS2022 Technical Paper Review Committee (TPRC).
