In this talk Professor Rais-Zadeh will talk about the research currently undertaken in the High Frequency MEMS Thrust and her research group, focusing on advanced RF devices and Microsystems, high-Q acoustic resonators, sensors, and terahertz modulators. The microsystems developed under this thrust have applications in reconfigurable radios, medical and subsurface imaging, satellite mapping, and remote sensing, to name a few. Technologies of interest include integrated RF MEMS, GaN-based micromechanical devices and sensors, MEMS-enabled ICs, wafer-level packaging and micro/nano-fabrication techniques.
Professor Mina Rais-Zadeh received the BS degree in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology and MS and PhD degrees both in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, in 2005 and 2008, respectively. From August 2008 to 2009, she was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Integrated MEMS Group, Georgia Institute of Technology. Since January 2009, she has been with the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where she is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Professor Rais-Zadeh is the recipient of NASA Early Career Faculty Award (2012), NSF CAREER Award (2011), IEEE Electron Device Society Early Career Award (2011), and the finalist in student paper competitions at the SiRF (2007) and IMS (2011) conferences. She is a senior member of IEEE and serves as a member of the technical program committee of IEEE IEDM, IEEE Sensors, and Hilton Head workshop. Dr. Rais-Zadeh is the leader of the “High Frequency MEMS” Thrust of the WIMS2 Research Center at the University of Michigan.
