During my PhD I worked on reducing the development cost of customized hardware acceleration for cloud infrastructure. We developed a framework for SmartNIC FPGAs to decouple hardware and software development. Also, we developed a framework to make SDRs more efficinet for spectrum reading, by backhauling only active signals. Finally, I worked 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 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. I've also completed Technology Management and Entrepreneurism Certificate Program in Institute for the Global Entrepreneur at UC San Diego.
My fields of interest include Networking Infrastructure, Computer Architecture and Embedded Systems.
