Suhaib Fahmy

Suhaib Fahmy graduated from Imperial College London in 2003 with a First Class Honours MEng in Information Systems Engineering, and in 2008 with a PhD in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. From 2007 to 2009, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at CTVR, Trinity College Dublin and Visiting Research Engineer at Xilinx Research Labs, Ireland, working on adaptive architectures for cognitive and software-defined radio systems. He was an Assistant Professor in the School of Computer Engineering at Nanyang Technological University from 2009 to 2015, where he was also Deputy Director of the Centre for High Performance Embedded Systems (CHiPES), and Deputy Program Director for the MSc in Embedded Systems. He joined the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick in 2015, where he leads the Connected Systems Research Group and the Adaptive Reconfigurable Computing Lab.

Dr Fahmy received the Best Paper Award at the IEEE Conference on Field Programmable Technology (FPT) in 2012 and the IBM Faculty Award in 2013. He serves on the technical program committees for a number of prestigious conferences in the area of reconfigurable computing, and actively reviews for many journals in related areas. Dr Fahmy is a Senior Member of the IEEE, Senior Member of the ACM, and Member of the IET.
