About Me

My personal philosophy of teaching is to take education personally. I think it is extremely important for students to understand concepts and to be able to apply them in real-world situations. I strongly believe in student participation in class, because it not only challenges me, but it also serves to foster a friendly environment between the students and the teacher.

I have been teaching both undergraduate and graduate-level courses that span multiple fields. I also have supervised many master theses and have published several papers in different journals. Additionally, I have participated in numerous conferences and seminars.

Research Interests

My research interests are focused on computer architecture and parallel processing.
