BackgroundI received my BSc degree in electronic engineering in 2005 in Iran then joining IUERC (Isfahan University Engineering Research Centre) for 3 years. I finished my MSc degree in communication and signal processing at University of Newcastle with distinction in 2009. In 2014 I finished my PhD degree at Newcastle University under supervision of Prof. Alex Yakovlev.
Area of expertise
- Biomedical implantable CMOS for neutral interfacing

ResearchMy main research is along the lines of developing circuit solutions and VLSI implementation for mixed-signal problems in power supply electronics, particularly within the energy deficient environments. From Sep 2012 to Jul 2014, I worked in ARM Ltd, Sheffield office, as verification engineer to work on the first 64-bit big-LITTLE architecture (Juno) in the world. As a member of Prof. Yakovlev’s team, I received the title of the "Innovator of the Year 2012" for the research entitled ‘Energy-modulated computing: a new paradigm for designing circuits and systems in energy-constrained environments’.
