received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Sharif University of Technology and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees both in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2005 and 2008, respectively. From 2008 to 2009, she was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Georgia Institute of Technology. In 2009, she joined the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, as an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). Since 2014, she has been an Associate Professor in EECS with courtesy appointment in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. She is currently at NASA JPL and on leave of absence from U. of Michigan.
Dr. Rais-Zadeh is the recipient of the NSF CAREER Award (2011), IEEE Electron Device Society Early Career Award (2011), NASA Early Career Faculty Award (2012), the Crosby Research Award from the University of Michigan (2013), National Academy of Engineering Frontiers of Engineering (2013), ONR Young Investigator Award (2014), IEEE Sensors Council Early Career Technical Achievement Award (2015), and University of Michigan EECS Outstanding Achievement Award (2016). Together with her students, she received the best poster award at the Transducers conference (2013), the best paper award at the IEEE SiRF conference (2014, 2016), honorable mention at the IEEE IMS (2014), and was the finalist in student paper competitions at the SiRF (2007) and IMS (2011) conferences. She was the chairperson of the Display, Sensors and MEMS (DSM) sub-committee at the 2013 IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) and a member of the 2014 IEDM Executive Committee. She is a senior member of IEEE, and a member of ASME, and a distinguished lecturer of IEEE EDS. She has served as a member of the technical program committee of IEEE IEDM (2011-2014), IEEE Sensors Conference (2011-2017), the Hilton Head workshop (2012, 2014, 2016), the IEEE MEMS Conference (2014-2015), Transducers (2015, 2017), and IFCS (2015-2018). She served on the 2015 IEEE MEMS Executive Committee and was an associate editor of IEEE Electron Device Letters (EDL). She is now an associate editor for the IEEE Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems (JMEMS) and on editorial board of Nature Scientific Reports. She will be the Technical Program Committee chair of the Solid-State Sensors, Actuators and Microsystems Workshop (Hilton Head) Workshop in 2018.
Her research interests include electron devices for wireless communication and sensing applications and the related device physics, resonant micromechanical devices, RF MEMS, gallium nitride MEMS, and micro/nano fabrication process development.
