Background

I am a lecturer and a postdoctoral fellow in the School of Engineering Science at Simon Fraser University.

Prior to SFU, I have been a lecturer and part-time faculty member at Concordia University and a postdoctoral fellow at McGill University and the University of British Columbia. I earned my Ph.D. in computer engineering from the University of British Columbia in 2016. I received B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in computer engineering from the Technion in 2007 and 2010, respectively.

I held design and research positions in the semiconductors industry between 2003 and 2008. I also served as a research and teaching assistant at the Technion Electrical Engineering Department between 2008 and 2010, and at the University of British Columbia Electrical and Computer Engineering Department since 2011. I also served as a research and teaching assistant at the Technion Electrical Engineering Department between 2008 and 2010, and at the University of British Columbia Electrical and Computer Engineering Department since 2011.

In addition to my current research activities, I am interested in designing performance-oriented embedded computing systems by utilizing the concurrent nature of FPGAs as an infrastructure for massively parallel architectures. In particular, I am interested in resolving the memory bottleneck of massively parallel reconfigurable systems by providing efficient and customizable embedded memories. Furthermore, I am interested in leveraging asynchronous circuit techniques to enable low-power and highly reliable embedded systems. My general research interests are My Ph.D. dissertation investigates FPGA-based parallel memory structures, specifically, multi-ported memories and content-addressable memories.
