Muhannad S. Bakir received the B.E.E. degree from Auburn University, Auburn, AL, in 1999 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in 2000 and 2003, respectively.

He is currently a professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech. Dr. Bakir is the recipient of the 2013 Intel Early Career Faculty Honor Award, 2012 DARPA Young Faculty Award, 2011 IEEE CPMT Society Outstanding Young Engineer Award, and was an Invited participant in the 2012 National Academy of Engineering Frontiers of Engineering Symposium. In 2015, Dr. Bakir was elected by the IEEE CPMT Society to serve as a distinguished lecturer for a four-year term. Dr. Bakir and his research group have received more than 25 conference and student paper awards including six from the IEEE Electronic Components and Technology Conference (ECTC), four from the IEEE International Interconnect Technology Conference (IITC), and one from the IEEE Custom Integrated Circuits Conference (CICC). Dr. Bakir’s group was awarded the 2014 Best Paper of the IEEE Transactions on Components Packaging and Manufacturing Technology in the area of advanced packaging. Dr. Bakir is an editor of a book entitled Integrated Interconnect Technologies for 3D Nanoelectronic Systems (with James D. Meindl) and is the author/coauthor of more than 180 journal publications and conference proceedings, 12 US patents, and the presenter of multiple international conference tutorials, including an invited tutorial on 3D IC and interconnect technologies at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC).

Dr. Bakir is an editor of IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices and an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Components, Packaging and Manufacturing Technology.
