Pedram Khalili-Amiri (LinkedinScholar) was an adjunct assistant professor in the department of electrical engineering at UCLA from 2013-2017, where he co-led the memory program within the NSF TANMS center, focusing on development of electric-field-controlled magnetic memory. He previously served as a research associate at UCLA since 2009, where he was project manager of two DARPA multi-institution programs, focusing on the development of spin-transfer-torque magnetic random access memory (STT-MRAM) and non-volatile logic (NVL), working with several major industry and university partners. These programs resulted in some of the world’s fastest and lowest-power magnetic memory technologies to date. In addition, since 2012 he has been co-founder and chief technology officer of Inston Inc., a startup company pioneering voltage-controlled MRAM for high-performance memory-intensive computing applications. His professional activities have included serving as a guest editor for Spin, and serving on the technical program committee of the Joint MMM/Intermag Conference.
