Dr. Babaei Received the B.Sc. degree in electronic engineering from AmirKabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), Iran, in 1971, and the M.Sc. degree in materials science and the Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Imperial College, London, UK, in 1975 and 1978, respectively. He was Head of the Electronic Materials Laboratory (EML) and Professor of Electronic Materials at the Electrical Engineering Department, K. N. Toosi University of Technology, Tehran, Iran (since 1980). He had been an Adjunct Professor at Materials Science and Engineering Department, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, from 2002-2007. He founded some hi-tech spin-off companies, mostly active in the field of high-temperature materials and technology. Electric heating, electroceramics, polycrystalline semiconductors, microfluidics, gas and humidity sensors, and artificial olfaction were His research interests. Prof. Hossein-Babaei received the Khwarizmi International Award for his outstanding R and D work on high-temperature systems in 2006.
