Daryoush Shiri

  • Affiliate Assistant Professor


Daryoush Shiri obtained his BS and MS in Electrical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology and AmirKabir (Tehran Polytechnic) University, respectively. He then worked as a RF/analog CMOS design engineer and team leader in startup companies. After this industrial experience, he received his PhD in electrical and computer engineering in 2013 from University of Waterloo, Canada. His thesis was devoted to computational study of electron transport in silicon nanowires under supervision of Professor M. P. Anantram.

He was a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), Waterloo (2013-2015), where worked on a project to develop a scalable package for quantum computing circuits. He moved to Sweden in 2016 as a postdoctoral fellow at Department of Physics, Chalmers University of Technology, to work on heat transport in 2D materials.  Currently he is a researcher (forskare) at Quantum Technology Laboratory (QTL) at the same university and works on the simulation of superconducting microwave circuits for scalable quantum computers, which is part of the European OpenSuperQ project. He supervised both undergraduate and graduate students.

His research contributions include: Proposing population inversion in silicon nanowires, Gunn effect in silicon nanowires, voltage-controlled heat diode and heat-to-mechanical vibration in graphene.
