Biography

Alireza Nojeh received his BS and MS degrees in electrical engineering from Sharif University of Technology. His work there focused on optoelectronic modulators based on interface charge layers. He then obtained a DEA in electronics/optoelectronics at the University of Paris XI – Orsay, where he worked on high electron mobility transistors, and a PhD in electrical engineering at Stanford University (2006), where he worked on carbon nanotubes, focusing on nanoscale electron emitters. He then joined the University of British Columbia, where he is currently an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering. His research interests are still in nanotechnology, in particular in carbon nanotube devices; interaction of light with nanostructures; energy conversion; electron sources, vacuum electronics and electron microscopy; solid-state electronics; micro/nanofabrication; and modeling and simulation of nanoscale structures.
