Amir M. Sodagar received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2000 (honors). He was with the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, from 2001 to 2002 as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow. In 2002, he joined K.N.Toosi University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, as an Assistant Professor, where he subsequently served as an Associate Professor of Electronics and Biomedical Engineering. He has also been with the University of Michigan as a Research Scientist, and with Polytechnique Montreal, Montreal, QC, Canada, as a Professeur Associe.
Dr. Sodagar is the author of five books, including the textbook: Analysis of Bipolar and CMOS Amplifiers (CRC Press, Boca Raton, FL, 2007), author/co-author of five book chapters, and author/co-author of numerous journal articles and conference papers. He has served as a member of scientific/technical/organizing committees for several local and international conferences.
