Saeed Ganji was born in Tehran, Iran. He came to the United States to study in 1973 advancing his education by receiving a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering (1978), M.S. degree (1981), and Doctoral of Science degree (Sc.D.) in Power Systems, Transmission and Distribution (1988) from George Washington University. He has also completed his Ph.D. in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) (2005) from Howard University. His dissertation was on Image Understanding Based on Independent Component Analysis (ICA) And Stochastic Learning Automata (SLA).
Dr. Ganji spent numerous years as a professor in the EE Department at GWU, teaching electronics-related courses. He was a prominent member of number of professional societies.
Dr. Ganji joined Electrocom Corporation in 2003 as a Chief Research Officer and was shortly promoted to the President/CEO of the company, a R&D engineering firm conducting research in Nanoscience/ Nanotechnology concentrating in tubes and wires, Sensor Technology including OLED (organic light-emitting diode) and long-wavelength light-emitting devices (InGaAsN), Semiconductor Device Electronics to include Superlattice, Transistors, Diodes, MISFETs (metal insulator semiconductor field effect transistor), MODFETs (modulated-doping FET also known as the High Electron Mobility Transistor (HEMT), HBTs (heterojunction bipolar transistor- a high mobility, compound semiconductor bipolar transistor used in RF and radar applications), and discrete or continuous Digital Signal Processing (DSP) to improve accuracy in image recognition technology. Dr. Ganji retired from Electrocom Corporation in 2020.
Dr. Ganji is a co-author of many lecture notes, the most recent, “Model for quantum Confinement in Nanowires and the Study of Carrier Mobility in Nanowire FinFETs” published in Lecture Notes in Nanoscale Science and Technology, and the author of “Nanowire Growth and Mechanism of these Growth for Developing Novel Nanomaterials” published in the Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
