Dr. Baker Mohammad is the director of System on Chip center and professor of EECS at Khalifa University. Dr. Mohammad is a senior member of IEEE and a member of the Mohammed bin Rashid Academy of Scientists, Dubai. He is in the advisory board of technology Innovation Institute Prior to joining Khalifa University, he was a Senior Staff Engineer/Manager at Qualcomm, Austin, Tx, USA, for 6-years, where he was engaged in designing high-performance and low-power DSP processors used for communication and multi-media application. Before joining Qualcomm, he worked for 10 years at Intel Corporation on a wide range of microprocessors design from high-performance, server chips >100Watt (IA-64), to mobile embedded processors low power sub 1 watt (xscale). He has over 16 years of industrial experience in microprocessor design, emphasizing memory, low power circuit, and physical design. Baker earned his Ph.D. from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008, his M.S. degree from Arizona State University, Tempe, and BS degree from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, all in ECE. His research interests include VLSI, power-efficient computing, embedded memory and in-memory computing, neuromorphic computing, emerging technology such as Memristor, STTRAM, hardware accelerators for Cyber-Physical Systems and AI. He is also engaged in a microwatt range computing platform for wearable electronics and WSN focusing on energy harvesting, power management, and power conversion, including efficient dc/dc, ac/dc converters.
Baker authored/co-authored over 200 referred journals and conference proceedings, >3 books, >18 US patents, multiple invited seminars/panelists, and the presenter of >3 conference tutorials, including one tutorial on Energy harvesting and Power management for WSN at the 2015 (ISCAS). Baker is the advisory board for the secure systems research center part of the Technology Innovation Institute. Baker serve as an associate editor for IEEE Transaction on VLSI (TVLSI), IEEE Access, and Scientific Reports journals. Dr. Mohammad participates in many technical committees at IEEE conferences and reviews for TVLSI, IEEE Circuits and Systems journals. He has received several awards, including the KUSTAR staff excellence award in intellectual property creation, IEEE TVLSI best paper award, 2016 IEEE MWSCAS Myrill B. Reed best paper award, and Qualcomm Qstar award for excellence on performance and leadership. SRC Techon best session papers for 2016 and 2017. 2009 Best paper award for Qualcomm Qtech conference and Intel Involve in the community award for volunteer and impact on the community.
