Azad Naeemi

Professor Azad J. Naeemi received his B.S. Degree in electrical engineering from Sharif University, Tehran, Iran in 1994, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Ga. in 2001 and 2003, respectively.

Prior to his graduate studies (from 1994 to 1999), Professor Naeemi was a design engineer with Partban and Afratab Companies, Tehran, Iran. He worked as a research engineer in the Microelectronics Research Center at Georgia Tech from 2003 to 2008 and joined the ECE faculty at Georgia Tech in fall 2008.

Naeemi’s primary area of interest is exploring nanotechnology solutions to the challenges facing giga- and terascale systems. He is a member of the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) technical working group on Interconnects and has co-authored three book chapters and more than 130 papers in refereed journals and international conferences. Professor Naeemi is the recipient of the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) Paul Rappaport Award for the best paper that has appeared in IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices during 2007. While in graduate school, he received the Colonel Oscar P. Cleaver Award for the outstanding graduate student in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech in 2000.
