The Fanos Research Lab at McMaster University focuses on the design, analysis, and deployment of intelligent Cyber-Physical Systems-on-Chip (iCPSoCs). iCPSoCs research is multidisciplinary by nature. As the figure illustrates, CPS are found in many critical domains such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Autonomous Cars,

Railways, Internet-of-Things (loT), and healthcare systems. To build efficient CPS for these domains, we are interested in research areas both at the infrastructure-level (e.g. hardware, software applications, compilers, and operating systems) as well as at the foundational-level (e.g. HW/SW codesign, artificial intelligence, scheduling theory, and security).

Block Heading

I am currently an Assistant Professor at the ECE Department, McMaster University. Before joining McMaster, I was an Assistant Professor at University of Guelph. Before that, I was a Soc R&D engineer at Intel. I obtained my PhD from University of Waterloo in 2017 and my MSc. From Cairo University in 2012.
