I am currently a Hardware Engineer at XNOR.AI, Seattle-based AI startup company. Before joining XNOR.AI, I earned my PhD from Electrical Engineering department at the University of Washington. During my PhD I worked on developing battery-free cameras that harvest their energy from electromagnetic waves. During my PhD I also worked on redesigning camera architectures and built video streaming cameras that consume orders of magnitude less power than their conventional version. Prior to UW, I graduated with my Bachelor’s in EE from Sharif University of Technology.
My main focus is on ultra low power embedded system design for Internet of Things (IoT) and other resource constrained applications, RF energy harvesting, and backscatter communication. In particular I have worked on developing battery-free cameras that harvest their energy from ambient sources of electromagnetic waves.
