Dr Samie has a solid lifelong commitment to working for universities and industries. He worked as a digital engineer, university researcher, and lecturer for over ten years. His experience covers various fields and sectors, including academic research (Cranfield University, Bristol Robotics Laboratories, the University of the West of England (UWE)), system maintenance and industrial control (industrial cranes at ports and harbors), electronic engineering (broadcasting systems), and electronic system design, simulation, verification and implementation fellows (microelectronic systems companies) that involve a wide range of scientific and technical skills.
As an academic, he developed academic, scientific, and industrial collaborations with researchers in a number of different countries, including the UK, leading to independent studies that resulted in a number of international journals. Conference papers and book chapters are also awarded as best papers.
Dr. Samie was involved with several EPSRC-funded projects, including “No-Fault-Found” and “Self-healing cellular architectures for biologically-inspired highly reliable electronic systems” (SABRE). SABRE was a project that Dr Samie had contributed toward his PhD titled "Bio-inspired prokaryotic array for fault-tolerant electronic systems". During his PhD, Dr Samie was intensively involved with RTL/FPGA design. Simulation, verification, and implementation to design a self-healing FPGA-like array, implement it in a Xilinx FPGA, and demonstrate its self0healing feature in a robot control application.
Dr Samie received his PhD from the University of the West of England, MSc from Shiraz University, and BSc from the Azad University of Saveh, all in the field of Electronics.

Dr Samie is particularly interested in various aspects of system health management, including design for test-ability, prognostics, diagnostics, self-healing, and fault-tolerant systems conducted on both robotics (self-healing robot) and electronics (low and high power electronics such as self-healing FPGA-like re-configurable arrays, and smart driver for power module with integrated prognostics capability) as well as RTL/FPGA/ASIC design, test and verification, tools, techniques, and applying them to a wide range of different industrial applications.
Mohammad is currently supervising a number of PhD students to look into various reliability and security issues that may raise Hardware Trojans integrated with embedded electronics. He is now contributing to the No-Fault-Found (NFF) project, which is research to deal with a specific type of failure that is hard to detect and repeat during electronic troubleshooting systems due to their intermittent and random features. NFF may arise from Hardware Trojan integrated with ASIC and FPGA during manufacturing, configuration, and programming. As a result, it may reduce electronics expected lifetime and trust-ability.
