Brief Biography 

I received my B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from Arak University (Arak, Iran) in 2003. I received my M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology (Tehran, Iran) in 2005 and 2011, respectively. I am currently an assistant professor of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Central Arkansas.

I previously worked as a senior researcher at Adaptive and Secure Computing Systems (ASCS) Laboratory at Boston University (2017-2018), and, as an assistant professor at department of Computer Engineering, Iran University of Science and Technology (2011-2017).

Open Positions

At the Intelligent and Embedded Systems Research Laboratory (IES-Lab is co-funded by I and Dr. Olcay Kursun), we research on the design challenges of artificial intelligent embedded systems. I may fund students for following research positions

Current Research Project

My researches and ideas, all, can be integrated under the topic of computer architecture and hardware design. In particular, I am working on: ​
My current research projects are: Prospective students need to have a good knowledge on hardware design especially Verilog and Chisel, good programming skills in C, C++, and hands on synthesis tools like Xilinx Vivado or Synopsys Design Compiler. ​
