Bio:  Hamed Rahmani is an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at New York University (NYU). He received a Ph.D. degree from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), an M.Sc. degree from Rice University, Houston, TX, and a B.Sc. degree from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, all in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Before joining NYU, he held multiple industry and research positions. As a research scientist, he worked with IBM T. J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights on high-speed electrical/optical interconnects. He was an Adjunct Professor at Columbia University in New York, NY, and a visiting lecturer at Princeton University, where he offered graduate-level courses in analog and RF circuit design. He was also a senior RFIC design engineer at Qualcomm Inc., where he focused on advanced 5G transmitters for cellular applications and RF front-end designs.

He is also the recipient of several prestigious awards and fellowships including the IEEE MTT-S Graduate Fellowship for medical applications and the Texas Instruments Distinguished Fellowship. He has served on the Technical Program Committee (TPC) for the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) since 2021. Also, he is a member of "MTT-26: RFID, Wireless Sensors and IoT" and an affiliate member of " MTT-25: wireless power transfer and energy conversion" technical committees of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society.
