Nima Ghalichechian



2007, Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Maryland, College Park


Dr. Nima Ghalichechian is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 2007 from University of Maryland, College Park where he developed electrostatic micromotors supported on microball bearings. From 2007 to 2012 he was with the Research Department of FormFactor Inc., Livermore, California as a Senior Principal Engineer. During this period, he helped to design and develop microsprings for advanced probe cards used in testing memory and SoC semiconductor devices. Dr. Ghalichechian joined The Ohio State University (OSU) as a Research Scientist in 2012. As a principal investigator, he has helped establishing several new programs at OSU sponsored by NSF, DARPA, and AFRL. From 2016-2017, he held a Research Assistant Professor position at ECE. His research interests are in the area of RF microsystems. He is currently principal investigator of the RF Microsystems Laboratory located at room 210 of the ElectroScience Lab.

Research areas of interest

His research is interdisciplinary and centers around two areas of micro/nanotechnology and electromagnetics. Specifically, he conducts research on RF microsystems with focus on reconfigurable antenna arrays, millimeter-wave antennas, terahertz microsystems, sensors, novel materials, and microfabrication processes.
