I graduated with a Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering from the department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of California, San Diego in summer 2011. During my Ph.D. study, I was advised by Professor Tajana Simunic Rosing where I was part of the SEE lab. I received my B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Technology (Baghdad/Iraq).

My research interests include optimizations and dynamic control, high-level system modeling and design-space exploration of emerging applications, Internet-of-Things, machine learning, mobile systems, communication networks modeling, design automation, system-on-chip, and system energy efficiency.

I work now as a research scientist at Intel Labs of Intel Corporation, Hillsboro/Oregon.
