Dr. Mozaffari Kermani received the B.Sc. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran, in 2005, and the M.E.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Western Ontario, London, ON, Canada, in 2007 and 2011, respectively. He joined the Advanced Micro Devices as a Senior ASIC/Layout Designer in 2011, integrating sophisticated security/cryptographic capabilities into a single accelerated processing unit.

Dr. Mozaffari Kermani was a recipient of the prestigious Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in 2011. In 2012, he joined the Electrical Engineering Department, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA, as an NSERC Post-Doctoral Research Fellow. Currently, he is with the Department of Electrical and Microelectronic Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY, USA.

His current research interests include emerging security/privacy measures for deeply embedded systems, cryptographic engineering, fault diagnosis and tolerance in cryptographic systems, design for reliability, and low-power secure and efficient FPGA and ASIC designs.

Note: There will be a Ph.D. position available starting Fall 2014. Interested applicants are advised to contact me and attach their CV and transcripts to proceed.
