Biography

Vahid Emamian received his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2003, and a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 1995 and 1997, respectively. He joined St. Mary’s University in 2003 as an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering, and was elevated to associate professor in 2008 and full professor in 2015.

Emamian is the founder and director of the Control and Data Acquisition lab and co-founder and co-director of Wireless Security (WiSe) Lab at St. Mary’s. The labs were established in 2006 and 2009 using more than $500,000 in grants from the Education Department, Department of Defense, Agilent Technology, and National Instrument.

Emamian is a senior member of IEEE and the IEEE Communications Society, and reviews papers for several IEEE and IET journals. He has been an associated editor for IEEE Systems Journal since 2011 and the associated editor for Elsevier International Journal of Computers and Electrical Engineering since 2007.
