Key Duties and Responsibilities

Currently I am working on developing a Parallel Patterns for Adaptive Heterogeneous Multi-core/Many-core Systems, Known as Paraphrase- An EU Funded project under the category of Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) (contract no: 288570).

Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Developing an adaptive load balancing and optimised workload distribution on available components 
  • Developing an adaptive allocation/reallocation of devices to available resources 
  • Developing workload characterisation mechanisms (prediction, classification and priority) for lower performance small-scale production and high-throughput optimised code classes

Academic Background

  • PhD. Computer Science, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, UK 2011-Present.
  • MSc. Computer Science, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK 2010- 2011.
  • M.Eng. Computer Engineering, Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran, Iran 2007-2009.
  • B.Eng. Computer Engineering, Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran, Iran 2001-2006.

Research Interests / Professional Background

  • Parallel computing - High performance computing - Heterogeneous and distributed systems - Machine learning

Additional Information / Media Work / Funding

  • IDEAS PhD Scholarship award- 2011.
