Masoud Babaie received the B.Sc. (Hons.) and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from the Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, and the Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, in 2004 and 2006, respectively, and the Ph.D. (cum laude) degree from the Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, in 2016.

He joined the Kavoshcom Research and Development Group, Tehran, in 2006, where he was involved in designing wireless communication systems. He was appointed a CTO of the company from 2009 to 2011. He was consulting for RF group of TSMC, Hsinchu, Taiwan, in 2013-2015, designing 28-nm All-Digital PLL and Bluetooth Low Energy transceiver chips. From 2014 to 2015, he was a Visiting Scholar Researcher with Berkeley Wireless Research Center, Berkeley, CA, USA, with the Group of Prof. A. Niknejad. In 2016, he joined the Delft University of Technology, where he is currently a tenured Assistant Professor in the microelectronics department. He has co-authored one book, three book chapters, 11 patents, and over 70 technical publication. His current research interests include analog and RF/millimeter-wave integrated circuits and systems for wireless communications and cryogenic electronics for quantum computation.

Dr. Babaie was a co-recipient of the 2015–2016 IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Pre-Doctoral Achievement Award, the 2019 IEEE ISSCC Demonstration Session Certificate of Recognition, the 2020 IEEE ISSCC Jan Van Vessem Award for Outstanding European Paper, and the 2022 IEEE CICC Best Paper Award. He was a recipient of the Veni Award from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) in 2019.
