Dr. Kaveh Rahbardar Mojaver

Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering


Kaveh (Hassan) Rahbardar Mojaver received the B.S. and M.S. degrees from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic) in 2009 and 2011, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from Concordia University in 2018, all in electrical engineering. From 2018 to 2023, he served as a postdoctoral researcher at the Photonic DataCom team at McGill University. In 2023, he joined Colorado State University as an assistant professor. His research focuses on photonic integration for optical computing, quantum computing, and data communications.

During 2009-2011, he worked at the Photonics Research Laboratory of Tehran Polytechnic as a graduate research assistant, where he completed his master’s thesis on modeling Transistor Lasers. From 2011 to 2013, he served as a lecturer at Tehran Azad University. From 2014 to 2018, he was a part of the Reliable Electron Device Laboratory at Concordia University, where he conducted research on micro-fabrication and physics-based modeling of III-nitride heterojunction field-effect transistors. From 2018 to 2023, as a postdoctoral researcher, Dr. Mojaver conducted research on photonic integrated circuits, mainly focusing on silicon photonics for optical communications and computations.

Dr. Mojaver’s research works have been published in several journal and conference publications. He has received the Fonds de Recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) postdoctoral scholarship, Concordia Merit scholarship, Concordia Accelerator Award, and STARaCom scholarship.
