Dr. Ava Hedayatipour joined the CSULB Department of Electrical Engineering as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2020. Dr. Ava received her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She earned a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Iran University of Science and Technology in 2012, and a M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Shahid Rajaee Teacher Training University in Iran in 2015.

Dr. Hedayatipour's current research interests include analog integrated circuit designs, bio-implantable and biomedical devices, low- power and low-noise designs, microelectronics, mixed-signal VLSI designs, and hardware security. During graduate studies, she developed the first integrated secure multimodal sensor that uses low power blocks to implement impedance and temperature sensor, with security fabricated with a Lorenz chaotic circuit. Her impedance sensor has been used to detect thoracic impedance (to detect heart failure) and hand gestures (to translate sign language). Her recent work in designing a printable electrode enables individuals to do electrochemical experiments in remote locations.

Dr. Hedayatipour is also the recipient of a University of Tennessee Fellowship Award in 2019 and Outstanding Teaching Assistant award in 2018.
