Omid Abari

PhD Student

My name is Omid Abari, and I am a Ph.D. student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). I am supervised by Professor Dina Katabi and Professor Anantha Chandrakasan. I received my S.M. degree from MIT in 2012 and my B.Eng. degree from Carleton University in 2010. My main research interests involve the design of low power, energy-efficient systems and circuits for wireless communication applications.
