Mona Jarrahi received her Ph.D degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 2007. During her Ph.D, she focused on optically assisted electronics for RF/millimeter-wave applications. Following her Ph.D work, she served as a postdoctoral scholar at Berkeley Sensor and Actuator Center (2007-2008), working on MEMS-based tunable terahertz electronics. She joined University of Michigan in the Fall of 2008, where she is currently an assistant professor of Electrical Engineering, leading the Terahertz Electronics Laboratory. Her research group focuses on Terahertz/Millimeter-Wave Electronics and Optoelectronics, Imaging and Spectroscopy Systems, as well as Microwave Photonics and Ultrafast Electro-Optics.
Prof Jarrahi is the recipient of numerous awards, including the ARO Young Investigator Award, the ONR Young Investigator Award, the NSF CAREER Award, the DARPA Young Faculty Award, Robert Bosch FMA fellowship, and best-paper awards at the International Microwave Symposium. Prof. Jarrahi is a member of the program committees of the International Conference on Infrared, Millimeter, and Terahertz Waves, IEEE International Microwave Symposium, International Workshop on Optical Terahertz Science and Technology, as well as the IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation. She is also a member of the Terahertz Technology and Applications Committee of IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society. She serves as a panelist/reviewer for National Science Foundation and Department of Energy and as the vice-chair of technical activities for IEEE Photonics Society, Southeast Michigan Chapter. Prof. Jarrahi is a senior member of IEEE and SPIE and a member of OSA.
