Khalili is currently an Assistant Adjunct Professor in the Department of
Electrical Engineering at UCLA. His research is focused on the development of
new nano-electronic and nano-magnetic devices for ultralow-power electronics,
data storage, and computing. He served as a research associate and program
manager at UCLA since 2009, where he led two DARPA programs, focusing on the
development of spin-transfer-torque magnetic random access memory (STT-RAM) and
non-volatile magnonic logic (NVL), working with several university and industry
partners. These programs resulted in some of the world’s fastest and
lowest-power magnetic memory technologies to date. Dr. Khalili is currently
leading research programs focusing on ultralow-power and high-density
electric-field-controlled magnetic devices for memory and logic. He is also
affiliated with the NSF center on Translational Applications of Nanoscale
Multiferroic Systems (TANMS), the center for Function Accelerated nanoMaterial
Engineering (FAME) and the Western Institute of Nanoelectronics (WIN).
He received the B.Sc. degree from Sharif University of Technology in 2004, and the Ph.D. degree (cum laude) from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), The Netherlands, in 2008, both in electrical engineering. His professional activities have included serving as a guest editor for the journal Spin, and serving on the technical program committee of the Joint MMM/Intermag Conference.
