Dr Rami Ghannam

  • Lecturer in Glasgow College UESTC (Electronic & Nanoscale Engineering)

Research interests

Research Interests:

My current research interests are in the area of energy harvesting - how energy can be harnessed from the surroundings to power wearable and implantable electronic devices. My most notable contributions have been in the area of photovoltaics. My work encompasses the fields of Microelectronics, Materials Science and Photonics. A list of my publications can be found here.

 

Profile:

I joined the University of Glasgow in August 2017 as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Electronic and Nanoscale Engineering.  I held previous industrial positions at Nortel Networks, IBM Research GmbH, Shaker Consultancy Group and Starkon S.A.E. I was also a research scientist in EPFL's PV Lab and an Assistant Professor at the American University in Cairo between 2007 and 2009. I am currently the Glasgow College UESTC Examinations and Assessments Coordinator, co-director of Microelectronics Lab and a member of the CSI group.
