Dr Rami Ghannam

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

Biography

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 and IBM Research GmbH. I was a research scientist in EPFL's PV Lab, where I worked on the device modelling of thin film solar cells. I am currently a Senior Member of the IEEE, a Senior Fellow of RET and a Member of the IET. I am also the Regional Chair of IEEE's Education Society in Scotland

My qualifications are the following: 

I have been the General Chair of the 2020 IEEE Transnational Engineering Education using Technology (TREET) conference and I am a member of the organising committee (Finance Chair) for the 27th IEEE Conference on Electronic Circuits and Systems. I have also served on the organising committee of several special sessions and conferences, including the UK-China Emerging Technologies conference.

Research interests

My research interests are in two areas:

1) Energy Harvesting - how energy can be harnessed from the surroundings to power electronic devices. My specific interests are in developing novel energy harvesting solutions for achieving truly wireless (and autonomous) wearable and implantable products. A list of my publications can be found here. Further details regarding my research in this area can be found by visiting the Microelectronics Lab webpages.  

2) Engineering Education - my interests in this area involve developing and evaluating new pedagogical methods for enhancing student learning, with a particular focus in the field of electronic engineering. Another key aspect of my work involves understanding the engineering skills shortages facing the UK and improving the quality of the engineering candidate. I am also interested in the use of technology for enhancing the teaching and delivery of electronic engineering concepts. Further details can be found via my Engineering Education Research Group webpages.
