Sajjad Moazeni

Ph.D. Candidate in the EECS department at UC Berkeley


Sajjad Moazeni received his B.S. degree from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2013, and M.S. from UC Berkeley in 2016, both in electrical engineering. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate in electrical engineering and computer science advised by Prof. Vladimir Stojanović at UC Berkeley. His research goal is to design and implement large-scale and energy-efficient integrated systems with applications ranging from computation and communication to sensing and imaging by merging state-of-the-art electronics with photonics and other emerging technologies. During his Ph.D., he focused on improving the energy-efficiency of large-scale data centers and supercomputers by creating faster and more energy-efficient data networks based on silicon-photonic interconnects and switches. He demonstrated the first bulk CMOS silicon photonics platform in a commercial 300mm wafer foundry (Nature, April 2018), a record energy efficiency and bandwidth density photonic transmitter, and a micro-second optical switching network with world's first processor with integrated photonic I/O.

His research interests are in integration technologies and system design for emerging devices, silicon-photonics, and analog/mixed-signal integrated circuits. He spent summer 2015 at Oracle America, Inc. as an intern in the mixed-signal design group. As a part of Center for Energy-Efficient Electronics Science (E3S) undergraduate research programs, he supervised undergraduate students during summer 2017. He is a member of Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC) and Marvell Nanofabrication Laboratory.
