Prior to his current appointment, Saeid Nooshabadi was a professor in VLSI multimedia signal processing in the Department of Information and Communications at the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, in the Republic of Korea. In 1992, Nooshabadi was a research scientist at the CAD Laboratory, of the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, working on the design of VLSI chips for TV ghost cancellation in digital TV. In 1996 and 1997, he was a visiting faculty member and researcher at the Center for Very High Speed Microelectronic Systems, of Edith Cowan University in Western Australia, working on high performance integrated circuits; and at Curtin University of Technology, in Western Australia, working on the design of high speed–high frequency modems. From 2000 to 2007 he was with the School of Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications at the University of New South Wales, in Sydney, where he currently holds an adjunct appointment.

Nooshabadi has extensive research and teaching experience and interests in the area of SoC design of multimedia systems, high-performance and low-power computing systems, application-specified integrated circuit design for information-processing systems, and embedded electronic systems. He is coauthor of multiple patents and more than 150 technical journal and conference papers on all aspects of VLSI information processing. He has supervised more than twenty postgraduate students.

He is a coauthor on papers that received the best paper award for the 2007 Midwest Conference on Circuits and Systems and the 1997 VLSI Design Conference.

Nooshabadi received an MTech and a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the India Institute of Technology, Delhi, in 1986 and 1992, respectively.
