Masoumeh (Azin) Ebrahimi

Associate Professor & Director of ICT Doctoral Program, EECS School, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden
Adjunct Professor, University of Turku, Finland

I am an Associate Professor with the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Division of Electronics and Embedded Systems, KTH, Sweden. I am also an Adjunct professor at University of Turku, Finland.
I received my PhD from University of Turku, Finland with honors in 2013. I have also received my MBA jointly from Turku School of Economics and European Institute of Innovation & Technology (EIT) ICT Labs in 2015. I joined KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden as a Marie-Curie Postdoctoral fellow in 2014. Currently, I am leading some projects at KTH and (co) supervising several M.Sc. and Ph.D. students. My main areas of interest include Systems-on-Chip, Interconnection Netwroks, Near-Memory Processing, and Machine Learning Accelerators.
