Dr. Mehran Mozaffari Kermani received the B.Sc. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Tehran in 2005, and the M.E.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Western Ontario in 2007 and 2011, respectively. After the completion of his Ph.D., he joined the Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) as a senior ASIC/layout designer, integrating sophisticated security/cryptographic capabilities into a single accelerated processing unit. Dr. Mozaffari Kermani was awarded the prestigious Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) postdoctoral research fellowship in 2011. He has been an NSERC postdoctoral research fellow at the Electrical Engineering Department of Princeton University for two years working on emerging security mechanisms for extremely sensitive and deeply embedded systems. He has published many articles in the well-respected IEEE Transactions journals. As of 2013, he has joined Rochester Institute of Technology as an assistant professor in the Kate Gleason College of Engineering in the Department of Electrical and Microelectronic Engineering.

Dr. Mehran Mozaffari Kermani is serving as an Associate Editor for the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems and the lead Guest Editor for the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics for the special issue of Emerging Security Trends for Biomedical Computations, Devices, and Infrastructures (2015 and 2016). Moreover, he has served as the lead Guest Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing for the special issue of Emerging Security Trends for Deeply-Embedded Computing Systems (2014 and 2015). He is currently serving as the technical committee member for a number of related conferences on embedded systems security and reliability. He was a recipient of the Texas Instruments Faculty Award (Douglas Harvey) and the "Featured" faculty in research in the college of Engineering in 2014.

Research Interests:

  • Emerging security/privacy measures for deeply embedded systems
  • Side-channel attack immune cryptographic hardware architectures
  • Fault diagnosis and tolerance in crypto-systems
  • VLSI reliability, and low-power secure and efficient FPGA and ASIC designs
