Research Interests

Professor Reda's 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) adaptive energy-efficient management techniques for computing systems; (2) thermal and power characterization for computing chips; and (3) physical design techniques of planar and 3D ICs.


Sherief Reda is an Assiociate Professor (with tenure) at the School of Engineering, Brown University. He joined Brown in 2006 after receiving his Ph.D. in computer science and engineering from University of Califronia, San Diego. He received his B.Sc. (with Honors) and M.Sc. in electrical and computer engineering from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt in 1998 and 2000. His research interests are in the area of computer engineering, with focus on energy-efficient computing systems, design automation and test of integrated circuits, and reconfigurable computing. Prof. Reda has over 60 refereed conference and journal papers (Google scholar profile). He served as a member of technical program committees for many IEEE/ACM conferences including DAC, ICCAD, ASPDAC, DATE, ICCD, GLSVLSI, and SLIP. Professor Reda received a number of awards and acknowledgments, including a best paper award in DATE 2002, a hot article in Operations Research letters in 2004, a first place award in ISPD VLSI placement contest in 2005, best paper nominations in ICCAD 2005, ASPDAC 2008, Brown's Salomon award in 2008, a NSF CAREER award, and a best paper award in ISLPED 2010. His research is funded by NSF, DoD, DARPA, Intel and Qualcomm. Download Curriculum Vitae.
