My current research projects focus on ensuring the scalability of future computing systems amid all physical challenges arising in nano-scale digital electronic systems. My laboratory devise (1) new physical (throughput, power and thermal) management for many-core processors; (2) new design methodologies and yield management techniques for three-dimensional integrated circuits; and (3) process variation characterization and modeling techniques for sub-100 nm semiconductor process technologies.
Sherief Reda is an Assistant Professor at the Division of Engineering, Brown University. Professor Reda received his Ph.D. degree in computer engineering (and science) from University of California, San Diego in 2006. Prior to that he received his B.Sc. (distinction with Honors) and M.Sc. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt in 1998 and 2000 respectively. His research interests include design automation and test of integrated circuits, reconfigurable computing and embedded systems, organization and architecture of computational systems, and synergies between biological and computational systems.
