Mohammad Mehdi Sharifi graduated from Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran, Iran in 2017 with a bachelor's in computer engineering. He then started his Ph.D. at Notre Dame in 2018, co-advised by Dr. X. Sharon Hu and Dr. Michael Niemier. His research interests include low-power circuit design, applications for beyond-CMOS technologies, and in-memory computing. Currently, his research focuses on designing circuits and architecture which exploits the properties of different beyond-CMOS technologies (e.g., TIGFETs and FeFETs).

Representative work: Mohammad Mehdi Sharifi, Ramin Rajaei, Patsy Cadareanu, Pierre-Emmanuel Gaillardon, Yier Jin, Michael Niemier and X. Sharon Hu, “A Novel TIGFET-based DFF Design for Improved Resilience to Power Side-Channel Attacks,” to appear at Design, Automation, and Test in Europe (DATE), 2020.
