Short Bio


Farhan was born in Karachi, Pakistan. He received his bachelor degree in Electronics Engineering from Usman Institute of Technology (Hamdard University) in 2012. He then started Masters of Nanoelectronic Systems at TU Dresden and completed his degree in September 2016. During his master studies he worked as a student in Globalfoundries and later he did his master thesis in cooperation with X-FAB Dresden. Since January 2017, he is a Scholarship PhD student working on a MERAGEM project (Modeling, Design, Realization and Automation of Printed Electronics and its Materials) at ITEC/CDNC group of Prof. Tahoori at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. His research interest includes design automation and Process Design Kit (PDK) development.
