Biography

Arslan Munir received his M.A.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) from the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, Canada, in 2007 and his Ph.D. in ECE from the University of Florida (UF), Gainesville, Florida, USA, in 2012.

He was a postdoctoral research associate in the ECE department at Rice University, Houston, Texas, USA from 2012 to 2014. He also worked as a visiting graduate research student at the University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada for one semester during his Ph.D. From 2007 to 2008, he worked as a software development engineer at Mentor Graphics in the Embedded Systems Division. He worked as a management consultant at National Engineering Services Pakistan (NESPAK) in the SCADA/Telecommunications section from 2004 to 2005.

He was the recipient of many academic awards including the Gold Medals for the best performance in Electrical Engineering, academic Roll of Honor, and doctoral fellowship from Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). He received a Best Paper award at the IARIA International Conference on Mobile Ubiquitous Computing, Systems, Services and Technologies (UBICOMM) in 2010. His current research interests include embedded systems, computer architecture, parallel computing, fault-tolerance, and big data analytics.
