I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). I received my M.S. and BCs degrees from the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Tehran (UT), Tehran in March 2014 and September 2011 respectively. Currently, I am a recipient of the Jacobs School Powell Fellowship at UC San Diego.
I am a member of System Energy Efficiency Lab (SeeLab) working with Professor Tajana Rosing. My research is focused on approximate computing, embedded systems and computer architecture. I am searching for alternative architecture to address computation bottleneck including approximate computing, neuromorphic computing, near-data computing and processing in-NVM. This includes circuit, architectural and user levels work to make computation more energy efficient while delivering acceptable quality of service.
Based on my research and students interest, we opened a new sub-group in SeeLab, Alternative Computing and Memory Systems (ACMS), where I am mentoring seven SMART graduate and undergrad students. In ACMS, we are actively working on several projects including:
- Daniel Perioni, Tunable approximate computing
- Deqian Kong, Neuromorphic computing
- John F Hwang, Neuromorphic computing
- Yan Cheng, Resistive near-data computing
- Atl Arredondo, Machine learning acceleration
- Debanjan Chatterjee, Hardware security/privacy acceleration
- Justin H Chang, In-memory processing
