Professional Experience: 

Aamer Mahmood received the B.E. (with Honors) degree in electrical engineering from the North-West Frontier Province University of Engineering and Technology, Peshawar, Pakistan, in 1992; the M.S. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore, Pakistan, in 1999; and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering with a focus on MEMS, Nanoelectronics, Sensors and Actuators, from the University of Texas at Arlington, USA, in 2006. He continued post-doctoral research with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, USA.

Dr. Mahmood joined the Birck Nanotechnology Center, Purdue University, as a Research Engineer, in 2008. He was promoted to Research Scientist and Senior Process Scientist in 2011 and 2012 respectively and was actively involved in the development of novel sensors and actuators for applications like implantable medical devices, solid-state high energy x-ray detectors with very high time resolution, and MEMS based detection of circulating tumor cells.

Aamer is currently a Senior Scientist at QEERI. He is a member of the IEEE and has authored over 20 peer-reviewed articles in journals and conference proceedings.
