IEEE Names Heydari Distinguished Lecturer

Payam HeydariJune 19, 2018 - The IEEE has selected Payam Heydari a 2019-2021 Distinguished Lecturer for its Microwave Theory and Techniques Society. Heydari, a UC Irvine professor of electrical engineering and computer science, formerly served as a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society.

“Only a handful of electrical engineering scientists across the world have served as the distinguished lecturer of more than one major IEEE society,” said Heydari, who conducts research in analog, radio-frequency, millimeter-wave and sub-terahertz integrated circuits design.

Each year, the IEEE societies carefully select a group of Distinguished Lecturers who are recognized experts in their fields. These scholars give invited seminars to various IEEE chapters and institutions around the world.

As the Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society, Heydari gave seminars on four topics related to advances in high-frequency integrated circuits in 14 places around the world, including Brazil, Japan and Turkey. As the designated Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, he will hold seminars on one topic: fundamentals of mm-wave and terahertz frequency generation, synthesis and radiation in silicon technologies. He will most likely deliver talks in countries such as China, Germany and Belgium, where there are strong microwave, millimeter-wave and radio-frequency research centers.

Heydar is looking forward to his upcoming term. “I will be able to disseminate to the entire world the latest advances of research that is being conducted by my group.”
