Alhawari is seeking highly motivated Ph.D. students to join his research group. Individuals with an M.Sc. in Electrical or Computer Engineering and a strong background in analog and mixed-signal circuit design are encouraged to apply. If you are interested, please send your CV, B.Sc., and M.Sc. transcripts to alhawari@wayne.edu


Mohammad Alhawari leads the Intelligent Chips (iChip) research lab and specializes in the design of integrated analog and mixed-signal circuits. The iChip lab works to create intelligent, efficient chips utilizing cutting-edge technologies to develop smart, multi-functional, low-power systems for various industries such as healthcare, AI, automotive, and IoT. Alhawari's research has been published in prestigious journals, presented at international conferences, and he has also written a book, several book chapters, and holds several patents. He also reviews for various journals and his research interests include energy harvesting, power management circuits, mixed-signal machine learning hardware, intelligent healthcare systems, and wireless power/data telemetry. Students in his lab will learn about chip design and apply circuit techniques to design complex System-on-Chips (SoCs) using advanced CAD tools with the goal of turning research concepts and designs into practical solutions that will impact industries.
