Meshal Alawein obtained his Master's degree in Electrical Engineering under the supervision of Prof. Hossein Fariborzi in his research group Integrated Circuits and Systems Group (ICS) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). His work included circuit modeling of spintronic devices as well as theoretical and experimental studies multistate nanomagnetic logic and memory devices. Meshal (S’16–M’18) received a B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, in 2014. Currently, he is a Ph.D. student at the Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences Department of the University of California, Berkeley.
Thesis Title: Circuit Simulation of All-Spin Logic
Meshal's research interests include spin orbitronics, spin caloritronics, and antiferromagnetic spintronics.
