Professor Rami Ghannam

  • Professor of Electronics (Electronic & Nanoscale Engineering)

Biography

I am a Professor in the James Watt School of Engineering and lead the Interactive & Creative Electronics (ICE) research group. I am also Convenor of Postgraduate Studies and held previous industrial positions at Nortel Networks and IBM Research GmbH. I was a research scientist at EPFL's PV Lab, where I worked on the device modelling of thin film solar cells. 

I hold a PhD from the University of Cambridge in Electronic Engineering. I also obtained my DIC and MSc from Imperial College London, as well as my BEng from King's College. I am Fellow of the British Computer Society, a Senior Member of the IEEE, a Principal Fellow of RET and a Member of the IET. I am also the Regional Chair of IEEE's Education Society in Scotland and the Chair of the IET Pedagogy in Engineering and Technology TN. Beyond these roles, I served as an External Examiner for both undergraduate and PhD degrees at universties that included Queen's University Belfast, Robert Gordon University, Coventry University, Queen Mary University and Sussex University. I am also an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Education

Research interests

I am interested in engineering interactive electronic devices and systems that enhance both learning and training. My current research explores how technology, computer games and simulations can nurture cognitive skills and promote engineering thinking capabilities. More information about my team's research can be found here.

In my previous work, I explored how micro-energy harvesters can extend the battery life of wearable devices. I also investigated different sensing and signal processing technologies to support intelligent hand gesture classification and subtle eye movement tracking. The primary focus of these user-centric technologies was to enhance teaching, training and learning experiences.
