I am a Ph.D. candidate at UC San Diego under supervision of professor Aaron Schulman working on Computer Systems and Networking. More specificly, we are using DSPs to implement an affordable and c-based programmable network middle box, with very low latency.
Previously I was working on ASIC Clouds, where Application Specific Integrated Circuits are used for high-demanding cloud applications. We developed an infrastructure to design the TCO-optimal data-center for these clouds, as well as demonstrating how wise technology node selection can reduce NRE and reach to a more optimal TCO, including development costs. We developed a comprehensive NRE model for the first time in academic literature.
I've also evaluated performance and power tradeoffs for different architectures such as ASICs, FPGAs, DSPs, ASIPs, and server Processors. Finally I've elaborated opportunities porvided by 3D ICs for design of more efficient accelerators.
I've got my masters in computer science at UCSD, under supervision of professor Michael Taylor in computer architecture. I've got my bachelors in Electrical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology, majoring in Digital Systems Design.
My fields of interest include Data-center Networking, Computer Architecture and Embedded Systems.
