Dr. Taimur Ahmed

Assistant Professor


Dr Taimur Ahmed completed his doctoral studies at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University, Australia in 2018. His research interests lie in functional materials and bio-inspired nanodevices. He has pioneered a new class of electronic memories and developed a novel ultra-thin artificial optoelectronic synapse for next-generation brain-inspired nanoelectronics. The new class of electronic memory efficiently stores multiple levels of data – enabling high density data storage in a single memory cell – in the same way as grey matter stores information in a human brain. His engineered electronic memories and synaptic devices mimic cognitive functionalities of a biological nervous system with ability to store new information and learn from previous experience.

Dr Taimur Ahmed has published more than 50 peer-reviewed publications in prestigious scientific journals and filed several patents. His research has also attracted national and international industrial and public media attention including scientific journal cover art.
