Dr Yasir Noori PhD, FSSI, AFHEA

Yasir received a first-class honours degree from the University of Dundee in Electronic Engineering and Physics in 2013, during which he was awarded three Duff & Garland prizes and class medals in his second, third and fourth years and a Carnegie summer vacation scholarship. He was then awarded a prestigious Faculty of Science and Technology scholarship to study his PhD in the Department of Physics at Lancaster University in Quantum Communications, which he completed in 2017. After his PhD, Yasir worked at Lancaster University for one year in developing GaAs high-energy particle detectors as a potential technology for upgrading the ATLAS detector in CERN. He then moved to the University of Southampton as a "Research Fellow - Nanotechnology Expert" to work in the School of Electronics and Computer Science as a key member of a £6.3m EPSRC programme (ADEPT). At Southampton, Yasir is responsible for developing the electrodeposition method for depositing technologically important materials over graphene. His role also includes the simulation, fabrication and characterisation of memristors and phase change memory systems.

Yasir has published 19 papers in high-impact journals such as ACS Nano Letters, ACS Photonics and IOP 2D materials. He has one patent, two book chapters and numerous conference contributions. He was awarded the IOP Science Communication Competition at the UKSemiconductors conference, and the three minutes thesis award at Lancaster University. He is a Fellow of the Software Sustainability Institute (SSI), an associate fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA), a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) and the Institute of Physics (IOP). In addition to being a Research Fellow, Yasir is also ECS's ambassador in Future Worlds, the business accelerator at the University of Southampton. He has successfully completed over 20 Science and Engineering modules offered by the MIT, Universities of California, Stanford, Pittsburgh, EPFL through the online platforms, EDX and Coursera.
