Reza Molavi received B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran in 2003 and the M.Sc. and PhD degrees from University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada in 2005, and 2013, respectively.
He was a member of mixed-signal development group at PMC-Sierra from 2007 to 2013, where he was involved in the design of several high-performance clocking and and transceiver building blocks for multigigabit serial data links and wireless chip products. He is currently a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow and Lecturer with the Electrical Engineering Department of University of British Columbia. He was the recipient of a distinguished
award for ranking 2nd in the nationwide Professional Engineering Practice Exam, Iran, 2003.He was also the recipient of the Best Paper Finalist award in the IEEE Canadian conference on Electrical and computer engineering, Montreal, Canada, 2012. His research interests include the modeling and design of high-frequency analog and mixed-signal circuits.
