Biography

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, under the supervision of Prof. Arash Reyhani-Masoleh. 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, having the pleasure of working with Prof. Niraj K. Jha. 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 IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems, the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems, the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I, and the Guest Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing for the special issue of Emerging Embedded and Cyber Physical System Security Challenges and Innovations (2016 and 2017). He was the lead Guest Editor for the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics and the IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing for special issues on security. He has served as the technical committee member for a number of related conferences on embedded systems security and reliability including DAC, DATE, FDTC, DFT, RFIDSec, LightSec, and WAIFI.

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. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE.

Note: There will be Ph.D. positions available. Interested applicants are advised to contact me and attach their CV and transcripts to proceed.
