Amir Tahmasbi (Persian: امیر طهماسبی‎, born 1985) is an Iranian-American scientist, researcher, and engineer, known for his work on Zernike moments,[1][2] theoretical limits on the accuracy of photon-limited imaging, in particular, single-molecule fluorescence microscopy,[3][5][6] and the design and development of advanced 4G LTE and 5G NR cellular receivers.[4] He is currently employed at Apple Inc. as a Software Architect in the Platform Architecture team. He was previously employed at Qualcomm Inc. where he contributed to the design of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and 865 SoCs.[7]


Tahmasbi received B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees both in electrical engineering: electronics (with honors) from the University of Shiraz, Shiraz, Iran in 2008 and from the Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, Iran in 2010, respectively. He also received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering: statistical signal processing and information theory from the Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, USA, in 2016.[7][8][9] He is currently a Software Architect at Apple Inc. focusing on the design and implementation of 5G NR cellular receivers.[7] His research interests include Statistical Signal Processing, Information Theory, and Software Architecture for telecommunication systems. He has coauthored more than 25 publications in the form of scientific journals, conference proceedings and patents.[8][10][11][12]


Tahmasbi began his scientific contributions to the signal processing community during his M.Sc. studies. His research at Iran University of Science and Technology was primarily concerned the development of reliable machine learning algorithms for robust diagnosis of breast cancer.[1][2] The findings, published in multiple scientific journals,[11] have since been widely cited by the artificial intelligence community (see e.g. [1]). The accompanying free toolbox have been downloaded nearly 10,000 times thus far.[13] He concurrently held an engineering lead position at Iranian Space Agency where he designed and implemented telecommunication systems for Navid and Zafar 1 satellites. His contributions were instrumental in the success of the two satellites' missions.[citation needed]
