Maedeh Taheri received her B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Electronics from the Shiraz University, Shiraz, Iran (2013), and her M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Riverside (2017) with the Dean’s Distinguished Fellowship Award. During her M.S. she was working under the supervision of Professor Balandin, with the focus on the fabrication of charge-density-wave (CDW) devices operating at room temperature. In Winter 2022, she started the Ph.D. program as a member of Nano-Device-Laboratory (NDL) in Professor Balandin’s research group. Her research interests are in the fabrication and characterization of low-dimensional CDW material and heterostructures with novel applications in electronics and optoelectronics. She is a recipient of the GAANN Fellowship Award in 2022.
