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.

After a postdoctoral stint at University of Waterloo, he moved to Sweden
in 2016 as a postdoctoral fellow at Chalmers University of Technology, to
work on heat transport in 2D materials. Currently he is a researcher
(forskare) at Department pf Microtechnology and Nanosciences at the
same university. He supervised both undergraduate and graduate
students and taught different courses in electronics circuits and

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, and large-signal
modeling of nonlinear devices and circuits.
