Professor Raahemi received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo, Canada, in 1997. Prior to joining the Telfer School of Management as an Associate Professor in Management Information Systems and Technology, Dr. Raahemi held several research positions in the telecommunications industry, including Nortel and Alcatel, focusing on computer networks architectures and services, dynamics of internet traffic, systems modelling, and performance analysis.

Professor Raahemi's work has appeared in peer-reviewed journals and conferences papers. He also holds several patents in data communications. His current research interests include data mining and knowledge discovery, information systems, business intelligence, data communications networks and services, service oriented architecture, systems modelling, and performance analysis. Dr. Raahemi established the Knowledge Discovery and Data mining (KDD) Research Laboratory compromising graduate students and researchers from multidisciplinary areas of E-Business Technology, Systems Science, and Engineering. The research projects in the KDD lab focus on two main streams: (a) novel techniques of data mining and machine learning with their emerging applications in business, healthcare, and engineering; and (b) Information systems, data communications, and service oriented organizations.

Professor Raahemi is a registered member of Professional Engineers of Ontario (PEO), a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE), and a member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). He is also a member of Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Electrical and Computer Engineering (OCIECE), and Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Computer Science (OCICS).
