Baker Mohammad is an associate professor of electronic engineering at Khalifa University, and a consultant for Qualcomm Incorporated. He is a senior member of IEEE and advisor for IEEE student branch at KUSTAR. Prior to joining Khalifa University he was a Senior staff Engineer/Manager at Qualcomm, Austin, USA where he was engaged in designing high performance and low power DSP processor used for communication and multi-media application. Before joining Qualcomm he worked on a wide range of micro-processors design at Intel Corporation from high performance, server chips > 100Watt (IA-64), to mobile embedded processor low power sub 1 watt (xscale). He has over 16 years industrial experience in microprocessor design with emphasis on memory, circuit and physical design. He earned his PhD from 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 interest includes power efficient computing with emphasis on low power, high yield embedded memory, emerging technology such as memristor, STTRAM, and computer architecture. In addition, he is engaged in micro-watt range computing platform for WSN focusing on energy harvesting and power management including efficient dc/dc, ac/dc convertors.
Baker holds 8 issued US patents and have 4 pending patent applications. He authored one book titled “Embedded Memory Design for Multi-Core and SOC” and publishes several publications in the area of digital system design, memory design and testing, power management and power conversion, in addition to emerging memory technology modeling and design.
Baker is a member of the Technical Program Committee for several IEEE conferences such as International Conference on Computer Design (ICCD), ICECS, VLSI-SOC. Baker is regular reviewer for IEEE Transaction of VLSI journal, IEEE Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems journal, and ACM Transactions on Semiconductor Manufacturing for topics related to memory design, test, yield, and memristor.
