Bio

Dr. Mohamed Ibrahim received the B.Sc. and the M.Sc. degrees (with distinction and honors) in computer and systems engineering from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt in 2010 and 2013, respectively, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from Duke University in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

As a graduate researcher, Dr. Ibrahim researched on the design and optimization of trustworthy lab-on-chip (LoC) systems to support critical DNA-analysis flows. He was a Visiting Scholar with the Technical University of Munich, Germany, and the University of Bremen, Germany. He spent a total of three years as a Research and Development Engineer in the semiconductor industry where he worked on design-for-test and post-silicon validation methodologies for several system-on-chip (SoC) designs. Dr. Ibrahim's current research interests include SoC design and embedded systems, electronic design automation of LoC systems, Internet-of-Bio-Things, security and trust of bio-systems, and machine-learning applications of bio-systems. He has published over 30 papers on these topics in premier journals and refereed conference proceedings.

Dr. Ibrahim was the recipient of the 2018 Council of Graduate Schools/ProQuest Distinguished Dissertation Award in Mathematics, Physical Sciences, and Engineering; the Best Paper award at the 2017 IEEE/ACM Design, Automation, and Test in Europe Conference; the 2017 Postdoc Mobility award from the Technical University of Munich, Germany; two ACM conference travel awards from ACM-SIGBED in 2016 and ACM-SIGDA in 2017; and Duke Graduate School Fellowship in 2013. He served as a Technical Program Committee Member for the 2019 IEEE/ACM Design, Automation, and Test in Europe Conference, the 2019 IEEE International Conference on VLSI Design, the 2019 IEEE Computer Society Symposium on VLSI, the 2019 ACM International Conference on Nanoscale Computing and Communication, and as an expert reviewer for a large number of conferences and journals.
