Dr. Mehran 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, Canada, in 2007 and 2011, respectively. He joined the Advanced Micro Devices as a senior ASIC/layout designer, integrating sophisticated security/cryptographic capabilities into a single accelerated processing unit.
In 2012, he joined the Electrical Engineering Department, Princeton University, New Jersey, as an NSERC post-doctoral research fellow. Currently, he is with the Department of Electrical and Microelectronic Engineering, Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY. His current research interests include emerging security/privacy measures for deeply embedded systems, cryptographic hardware systems, fault diagnosis and tolerance in cryptographic hardware, VLSI reliability, and low-power secure and efficient FPGA and ASIC designs.
Currently, he is serving as an Associate Editor for the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems and the lead Guest Editor for the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics for the special issue of Emerging Security Trends for Biomedical Computations, Devices, and Infrastructures (2015 and 2016). Moreover, he has served as the lead Guest Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing for the special issue of Emerging Security Trends for Deeply-Embedded Computing Systems (2014 and 2015). He is currently serving as the technical committee member for a number of related conferences on embedded systems security and reliability.
He was a recipient of the prestigious Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in 2011 and the Texas Instruments Faculty Award (Douglas Harvey) in 2014.
Note: There will be Ph.D. positions available. Interested applicants are advised to contact me and attach their CV and transcripts to proceed.
