Masoud Babaie received the B.Sc. (Hons.) and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from the Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, and the Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, in 2004 and 2006, respectively, and the Ph.D. (cum laude) degree from the Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, in 2016.

He joined the Kavoshcom Research and Development Group, Tehran, in 2006, where he was involved in designing wireless communication systems. He was appointed a CTO of the company from 2009 to 2011. He was consulting for RF group of TSMC, Hsinchu, Taiwan, in 2013-2015, designing 28-nm All-Digital PLL and Bluetooth Low Energy transceiver chips. From 2014 to 2015, he was a Visiting Scholar Researcher with Berkeley Wireless Research Center, Berkeley, CA, USA, with the Group of Prof. A. Niknejad. Since Aug. 2016, he has joined the Delft University of Technology as an Assistant Professor. His current research interests include analog and RF/millimeter-wave integrated circuits and systems for wireless communications and cryogenic electronics for quantum computation.

Dr. Babaie was a recipient of the 2015–2016 IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Pre-Doctoral Achievement Award. He serves as a Reviewer of the IEEE JOURNAL OF SOLID-STATE CIRCUITS and a committee member of ISSCC student research program (SRP).
