Dr. Muhammad S. Ullah is an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering
at Florida Polytechnic University. His research focuses are the modeling of RLC interconnects
in high density integrated circuits and energy efficient electronic devices (TFET)
for logic applications based on emerging 2-D nanomaterials (MoS2, Graphene, and CNT).
He also worked on a neural network-based classification of deceptive and stress speech
using non-linear spectral and cepstral features during his master’s study. In his
Ph.D. dissertation, he investigated the high-speed very-large-scale integration (VLSI)interconnect
and energy efficient electronic devices for emerging post-MOSFET and beyond silicon
Before joining Florida Poly, Ullah worked as a full-time lecturer from 2008 to 2011
in the Chittagong University of Engineering & Technology (CUET), Bangladesh. From
2011 to 2013, he worked as a teaching assistant at Purdue University Northwest. He
began working as a full instructor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City while
he pursued his doctoral degree. He has taught undergraduate courses in electrical
circuits, digital logic designs, signals and systems, and graduate courses in advanced
digital signal processing, introduction to VLSI designs, advanced VLSI designs, and
emerging nanotechnology, including hands-on experience in MATLAB, Cadence Virtuoso,
Ullah has served as a regular reviewer of many journals and conferences, including
IEEE Transactions on very large scale integration systems, IEEE International Symposium
on Circuits and Systems, IEEE Midwest Symposium on Circuits and Systems, Microelectronics
Journal-Elsevier and Circuits, Systems and Signal Processing-Springer, and ASP Journal
of Low Power Electronics.
