Bio: Hamed Rahmani is an incoming Assistant Professor at the Electrical and Computer Engineering of NYU Tandon School of Engineering. He received a Ph.D. degree from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2020 and an M.Sc. degree from Rice University in 2017, both in electrical and computer engineering. He completed his B.Sc. degree at the Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, Iran in Electrical Engineering in 2014.
Dr. Rahmani has been with IBM T. J. Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY since 2022 and is currently a Research Staff Member working on research projects investigating Mixed-Signal CMOS circuits for high-speed electrical and optical data communication. Dr. Rahmani was also 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. From 2020 to 2022, He was a senior RFIC design engineer at Qualcomm Inc., Boxborough, MA 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 serves on the technical committee for the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2022. 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.
