Amin Arbabian received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of California at Berkeley, Berkeley, CA, USA, in 2011. From 2007 to 2008, he was a part of the Initial Engineering Team at Tagarray, Inc., Palo Alto, CA, USA (now acquired by Maxim Integrated Inc.). In 2010, he joined Qualcomm's Corporate Research and Development Division, San Diego, CA, USA, where he designed circuits for next-generation ultralow power wireless transceivers. In 2012, he joined Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA, where he is now an Associate Professor of electrical engineering. His current research interests include mm-wave and high-frequency circuits and systems, imaging technologies, Internet-of-Everything devices including wireless power delivery techniques, and medical implants. 

Dr. Arbabian was a recipient or co-recipient of the 2020 IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems Best Paper Award, 2016 Stanford University Tau Beta Pi Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching, the 2015 NSF CAREER Award, the 2014 DARPA Young Faculty Award including the Director’s Fellowship in 2016, the 2013 Hellman Faculty Scholarship, the 2010–2011, 2014–2015, and 2016–2017 Qualcomm Innovation Fellowships, and best paper awards at the 2017 IEEE Biomedical Circuits and Systems Conference, the 2016 IEEE Conference on Biomedical Wireless Technologies, Networks, and Sensing Systems, the 2014 IEEE VLSI Circuits Symposium, the 2013 IEEE International Conference on Ultra-Wideband, the 2010 IEEE Jack Kilby Award for Outstanding Student Paper at the International SolidState Circuits Conference, and two-time second place best student paper awards at 2008 and 2011 RFIC Symposiums. He currently serves on the steering committee for RFIC Symposium, the technical program committees of RFIC Symposium and VLSI Circuits Symposium, and as an Associate Editor for IEEE Solid-State Circuits Letters and the IEEE Journal of Electromagnetics, RF and Microwaves in Medicine and Biology.
