Research Experience

Red Hat Research (RedHat)

Affiliated Researcher, Supervisor: Ulrich Drepper, Red Hat Research
Advisors: Prof. Manos Athanassoulis and Prof. Renato Mancuso

  • We proposed an AI Accelerator

    I designed and implemented a Re-configurable Hardware Accelerator. A novel memory abstraction that enables the definition of workload-specific memory access paradigms through an on-chip FPGA.

    The proposed accelerator now available open-source (here)

The Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences (IPM)

Research Assistant, Supervisor: Prof. Hamid Sarbazi-Azad, School of Computer Science
Advisor: Dr. Arash Tavakkol and Mohammad Sadrosadati

  • Studies and research focused on SSDs

    We proposed a Performance Evaluation of Dynamic Page Allocation Strategies in SSDs.
    Corresponding Paper Published in ACM Transactions on Modeling and Performance Evaluation of Computing Systems (TOMPECS)

  • Technical assistant in implementation of XMulator

    Xmulator is an object-oriented event-based simulator software for interconnection networks and wireless networks. I contributed to the packages required for Network-on-Chip (NoCS) simulation. Xmulator uses Orion power library for power and energy estimation.

  • Extension and improvement in DiskSim.

    DiskSim is an effcient, accurate, highly-con gurable disk system simulator which includes modules for most secondary storage components of interest, including device drivers, buses, controllers, adapters, and disk drives.

High-Performance Computing Architectures and Networks (HPCAN Laboratory)

Research Assistant, Supervisor: Prof. Hamid Sarbazi-Azad, Department of Computer Engineering, Sharif University of Technology.

  • Studies and research focused on GPUs

    The placement of the Last Level Cache (LLC) banks in the GPU on-chip network can significantly affect the performance of memory-intensive workloads. We attempt to offer a placement methodology for the LLC banks to maximize the performance of the on-chip network connect- ing the LLC banks to the streaming multiprocessors in GPUs.

  • Extension and improvement in GPGPU-Sim.

    GPGPU-Sim provides a detailed simulation model of a contemporary GPU (such as NVIDIA's Fermi and GT200 architectures) running CUDA and/or OpenCL workloads and now includes an integrated (and validated) energy model, GPUWattch.

  • Implementation of a Genetic algorithm based, intermediate Software

    The software was linked to GPGPU-Sim to process all data collected from previous simulations automatically and lead us to nd a new throughput aware metric in The placement of the Last Level Cache (LLC) banks in the GPU on-chip network.
    Genetic Algorithm (GA) is a metaheuristic inspired by the process of natural selection that belongs to the larger class of evolutionary algorithms (EA).

  • Studies and research on NoCs focused on Routing Algorithms

    We figured a novel approach, called Preemptive Waiting, which applied to Odd-Even routing algorithm (PWOE). PWOE postpones the saturation traffic rate of NoC compared to OE, under synthetic traffic loads.
    BookSim which is a cycle-accurate simulator developed in C++ was as our Simulation Environment.
