Biography

Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Electrical Engineering and Social Sciences

Fakhreddine Zayer is currently a Post Doctoral Fellow in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the Center for Autonomous Robotic Systems (KUCARS), Khalifa University, UAE, since 2021. The focus is on Cutting-Edge AI Chips for AI Computing and Engineering approaches and the advances of computer vision and range sensing for Robotics. Several scenarios and algorithms are investigated such as navigation, path-planning, localization and control, etc, for next generation robotics. The related AI Chip Technologies for Robotics includes Video/Image, Sound and Speech, NLP, Control, NN topology, DNN and ML Algorithms, Chip Performance Optimizations, Programmable and neuromorphic chip, System-on-chip Architecture, Development Tool-chain, High Bandwidth off-chip Memory, High-Speed Interface, Bionic Devices, On-Chip Memory, and 3D Staking, etc.

Fakhreddine Zayer received his B.S. degree in physics in 2011 and the M.S. degree in materials, nanostructures, devices and microelectronic systems in 2013 from Faculty of Sciences of Monastir, University of Monastir, Tunisia. He received his Ph.D. degree in Electronics and Computer Engineering in 2021 from the National Engineering School of Monastir (ENIM) of Monastir University, Tunisia in collaboration with the Dept. of Electrical and Information Engineering, University of Cassino and Southern Lazio, Italy. The PhD topic was focused on the compact modeling of nanoscale devices (including reliability, testability) and computing paradigms (including neuromorphic computing, in-memory computing for logic and storage and computer vision applications). He worked as research associate with the system on chip center(SOCC), Khalifa university in 2019-2021. Prior to joining Khalifa University, he worked as a senior staff engineer in the Integration of Materials to the System (IMS)-Thales group, France in 2014-2015 and as a research staff for short periods in the institute of telecommunication (IT) of Aveiro, Portugal, and the Institute of Microelectronics of Seville (IMSE-CNM), Seville, Spain.
