Amir Safavi-Naeini joined Stanford University in 2014 and is currently an Associate Professor of Applied Physics Department and a member of Ginzton Lab. He received his B.A.Sc. in Electrical Engineering at the University of Waterloo in Canada in 2008, and his Ph.D. in Applied Physics at the California Institute of Technology in 2013. In his work at Caltech and Stanford, Safavi-Naeini developed optomechanical devices resulting in some of the first experiments showing quantum optomechanical phenomena. The current focus of his group's research is developing photonic, phononic, and microwave devices for quantum sensing, communications, and information processing. He is the author of more than 50 journal papers and co-inventor on 5 US patents/applications. He has been awarded the Terman (2015, 2018), Hellman (2016), Packard (2017), Sloan (2020) fellowships, DARPA Young Faculty Award & Director's Fellowship (2019), NSF CAREER award (2020), Moore Inventor Fellowship (2022), and Max Planck Sabbatical Fellowship (2022).
