Biography

Arslan Munir is currently a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). He was a postdoctoral research associate in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department at Rice University, Houston, Texas, USA from May 2012 to June 2014. He received his M.A.Sc. in 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 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 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 and cyber-physical systems, secure and trustworthy systems, computer architecture, multicore, parallel computing, fault tolerance, and computer security.

Prospective Ph.D. students: I currently do not have openings for new M.S. and/or Ph.D. students.

I am primarily seeking Ph.D. students who have done their Masters in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Computer Science. Please look at my research interests and research overview to find out if you are interested in doing research on any listed (and/or related) topic or projects. Students with publications in IEEE/ACM/Elsevier journals or IEEE/ACM conferences are encouraged to apply. Masters student with outstanding credentials and willing to do a Ph.D. can also apply. Masters students who want to work on their thesis are also welcome to discuss a thesis research topic that falls within my research interests. If you meet these criteria, please send me your CV and any other information such as published papers or completed projects (in industry) that will strengthen your application.
