CV

Dr. Baker Mohammad is associate professor of ECE at Khalifa University and a Director of System on Chip Center.  He was a founding member of KU Semiconductor Research Center at KU.  Prior to joining Khalifa University Baker was a Senior staff Engineer/Manager at Qualcomm, Austin, USA for 6-years, where he was engaged in designing high performance and low power DSP processor used for communication and multi-media application. Before joining Qualcomm he worked for 10 years at Intel Corporation on a wide range of micro-processors design from high performance, server chips > 100Watt (IA-64), to mobile embedded processor low power sub 1 watt (xscale).  His research interest includes VLSI, power efficient computing,, Design with emerging technology such as Memristor, STTRAM, In-Memory-Computing, Efficient hardware accelerator for search engine and image processing.  In addition, he is engaged in microwatt range computing platform for wearable electronics and WSN focusing on energy harvesting, power management, and power conversion including efficient DC/DC, AC/DC convertors. 

Baker authored/co-authored over 30 referred journals and 80 conference proceedings, 3 books, 18 US patents, multiple invited seminars/panelist, and the presenter of 3 conference tutorials including one tutorial on Energy harvesting and Power management for WSN at the 2015 (ISCAS).  Baker is associate editor for microelectronics journal, Elsevier and serves in many technical committee for IEEE conferences and reviewers for journals including TVLSI, IEEE Circuits and Systems. 

Dr. Mohammad has received several awards including the KUSTAR staff excellence award in intellectual property creation, IEEE TVLSI best paper award, 2016 IEEE MWSCAS Myrill B. Reed best paper award, Qualcomm Qstar award for excellence on performance, and leadership. SRC Techon best session papers for 2016 and 2017.  2009 Best paper award for Qualcomm Qtech conference, and Intel Involve in the community award for volunteer and impact on the community.
