Mehdi Ghasemirahaghi, Assistant Professor of Practice

Mehdi’s research interests include Internet of Things (IoT), energy-aware computing, and computation offloading at the edge. His focus is on enabling the energy-efficient execution of machine learning workloads on resource-constrained commercial-off-the-shelf IoT devices. His research can be applied to a variety of use cases including but not limited to agriculture, robotics, AR/VR, and healthcare. He has worked on several projects ranging from circuit-level to system-level optimization of embedded systems.

He has served as a reviewer for several conferences and journals including Design Automation Conference (DAC), IEEE Transactions on Computer (TC), IEEE Transactions on Sustainable Computing (TSUSC), ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems (TECS), and IEEE Embedded Systems Letter (ESL).
