About Me

Atieh Lotfi


I am a 3rd year Ph.D student in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at UC San Diego. I am a member of Microelectronic Embedded Systems Laboratory (MESL) supervised by Prof. Rajesh Gupta.

Before joining UCSD, I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer Engineering from School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at University of Tehran in 2008 and 2012 respectively.

My current research is in the area of "Embedded Systems" with a specific focus on "high level synthesis" and "Approximate Computing". Over the last years, I have researched in the areas of "microelectronic variability", "Fault Tolerant System Design", and "Design for Testability".
