About me

I am a final-year PhD student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Toronto under the supervision of Prof. Vaughn Betz. My research interests are the intersection of FPGA architecture/CAD and deep learning acceleration. I am an affiliate of the Intel/VMware Crossroads 3D-FPGA Academic Research Center, the Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence, and the International Centre for Spatial Computational Learning. I also work at MangoBoost, a rapidly growing startup that develops data processing units for accelerating datacenter infrastructure operations. From 2018 to 2022, I was a research scientist at Intel Labs and Intel's Programmable Solutions Group CTO Office. I received my MASc in Computer Engineering from the University of Toronto in 2018, and my BSc in Electronics Engineering from the German University in Cairo in 2016.
