Dr. Mehran Mozaffari Kermani received the B.Sc. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran, in 2005, and the M.E.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Western Ontario, London, Canada, in 2007 and 2011, respectively, under the supervision of Prof. Arash Reyhani-Masoleh. He joined the Advanced Micro Devices as a senior ASIC/layout designer, integrating sophisticated security/cryptographic capabilities into a single accelerated processing unit.
In 2012, he joined the Electrical Engineering Department, Princeton University, New Jersey, as an NSERC post-doctoral research fellow, having the pleasure of working with Prof. Niraj K. Jha. Currently, he is with the Department of Electrical and Microelectronic Engineering, Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY. His current research interests include emerging security/privacy measures for deeply embedded systems, cryptographic hardware systems, fault diagnosis and tolerance in cryptographic hardware, VLSI reliability, and low-power secure and efficient FPGA and ASIC designs.
Currently, he is serving as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on VLSI Systems, the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems, the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I, and the Guest Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing for the special issue of Emerging Embedded and Cyber Physical System Security Challenges and Innovations (2016 and 2017). He was the lead Guest Editor for the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics and the IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing for special issues on security. He is currently serving as the technical committee member for a number of related conferences on embedded systems security and reliability.
He was a recipient of the prestigious Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in 2011 and the Texas Instruments Faculty Award (Douglas Harvey) in 2014.
Reza Azarderakhsh received the BSc degree in electrical and electronic engineering in 2002, the MSc degree in computer engineering from the
Sharif University of Technology in 2005, and the PhD degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Western Ontario in
2011. He was with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Western Ontario, as a Limited Duties Instructor, in 2011.
He was a recipient of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in 2012. He has been an
NSERC post-doctoral research fellow with the Center for Applied Cryptographic
Research at the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization, University of Waterloo. Currently, he is a faculty member with the Department of Computer Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology. His current research interests include finite field and its application, high-performance computation, elliptic curve cryptography, and pairing based cryptography. He is a member of the IEEE.
Dr. Mehdi Mirakhorli is an Assistant Professor at Rochester Institute of Technology with a research background in software architecture design, requirements engineering, and application of data mining in software engineering.
