Associate Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Dr. Hani Saleh is an Associate Professor of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Khalifa University since 2012. He is a co-founder and an active researcher in the KSRC (Khalifa University Research Center) and the System on Chip Research Center (SOCC) where he led multiple IoT projects for the development of wearable blood glucose monitoring SOC, mobile surveillance SOC and AI Accelerators for edge devices. Dr. Saleh has a total of 19 years of industrial experience in ASIC chip design, microprocessor design, DSP core design, graphics core design and embedded system design.

Prior to joining Khalifa University, he worked for many leading semiconductor design companies including a Senior Chip Designer (Technical Lead) at Apple Inc., Intel (ATOM mobile microprocessor design), AMD (Bobcat mobile microprocessor design), Qualcomm (QDSP DSP core design for mobile SOC’s), Synopsys (designed the I2C DW IP included in Synopsys DesignWare library), Fujitsu (SPARC compatible high-performance microprocessor design), and Motorola Australia.

Dr. Saleh received his B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Jordan, M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. His research interest includes IoT design, deep learning, AI hardware design, DSP algorithms design, DSP hardware design, computer architecture, computer arithmetic, SOC design, ASIC chip design, FPGA design and automatic computer recognition. Dr. Saleh has over 20 issued US patents, eight pending patent applications, and over 120 articles published in peer-reviewed conferences and journals in the areas of digital system design, computer architecture, DSP, and computer arithmetic.
