About Me

Atieh Lotfi

I ontained my Ph.D in computer science from University of California, San Diego. During my PhD, I supervised by Prof. Rajesh Gupta. I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in computer engineering from School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Tehran . My current research is in the area of programmable hardware accelerators, computer architecture, compilers, and fault tolerant system design.
