sensors logoProfessor Mina Rais-Zadeh has been awarded the 2015 IEEE Early Career Sensors Council Technical Achievement Award, "For pioneering research in sensors technology: adaptable nano/micro-electromechanical systems (N/MEMS)." This award honors individuals with outstanding technical contributions within the scope of the IEEE Sensors Council. Prof. Rais-Zadeh was awarded the honor at the 2015 IEEE Sensors Conference.

Prof. Rais-Zadeh conducts research in the area of integrated RF MEMS, GaN-based micromechanical devices and sensors, resonant body transistors, MEMS-enabled ICs, wafer-level packaging and micro/nano-fabrication techniques. More specifically, her group is focusing on adaptable nano- and micro-electromechanical systems (N/MEMS) for smart radio applications and high-frequency telecommunication. They are developing a technology platform that offers diverse functionalities by integrating more-than-Moore components all on the same substrate.

She directs the Resonant MEMS Group, and is thrust leader of the High Frequency MEMS area in the Center for Wireless Integrated MicroSystems (WIMS2).

Prof. Rais Zadeh has received a Young Investigator Program Award from the Office of Naval Research, an NSF CAREER Award, an EDS Early Career Award, a NASA Early Career Grant, a Best Poster Award at the 2013 Transducers Conference, and a best paper award at the 14th IEEE Topical Meeting on Silicon Monolithic Integrated Circuits in RF Systems (SiRF). She was selected to participate in the 2013 U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium.
