About Me

My name is Soheil Salehi and I am a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department at the University of Arizona. Before joining the University of Arizona, I was an NSF-Sponsored Computing Innovation Fellow (CIFellow) and Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Accelerated, Secure, and Energy-Efficient Computing (ASEEC) Laboratory and the Center for Hardware and Embedded Systems Security and Trust (CHEST) at the University of California, Davis (UCD) performing research under mentoring of Dr. Houman Homayoun with a research focus on Privacy, Security, and Trust in Computer Systems. My postdoctoral fellowship was supported by the Computing Research Association (CRA) and the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) under the NSF-Sponsored Computing Innovation Fellows (CIFellows) Program for 2020. I was an Associate Member of the UCD Institute for Hardware and AI-enabled Cyber Security (IHACS). My technical research interests include Hardware and AI-enabled Security in IoT, Energy-Efficient and Intelligent Signal Conversion and Processing in IoT, Neuromorphic and Biologically-inspired AI Hardware, Emerging Spin-Based Devices, Reconfigurable and Adaptive Computer Architectures, and Low-Power and Reliability-Aware VLSI circuits. My educational interests span laboratory-based instruction, technology-enabled learning, and feedback-driven formative assessment. I completed my Computer Engineering Ph.D. in May 2020 at the University of Central Florida (UCF) where I received my M.S. degree in Computer Engineering in December 2016. I completed my doctoral research in the Computer Architecture Laboratory (CAL) under the supervision of Dr. Ronald F. DeMara at UCF. I was a Graduate Research Assistant supporting an NSF-Sponsored Communications, Circuits, and Sensing-Systems (CCSS) project and was a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UCF from 2014 to 2018. I was the founding president of the Computer Hardware Innovation and Design Association (CHIDA), which provides programs that encourage academic excellence, innovation, and personal growth by providing students with the tools, resources, guidance, and inspiration to build their own future in the field of computer architecture. Additionally, I was the founding president of the Student Laureates of STEM Teaching and Learning (SLSTL), which plays an active role in the advancement of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning by providing financial and academic support to graduate and undergraduate students in STEM disciplines. I have been credentialed with the Preparing Tomorrow’s Faculty Workshop covering evidence-based and emerging teaching methods. I was the recipient of an IEEE/ACM Design Automation Conference (DAC) dissertation forum grant in 2019 and the sole recipient of the UCF Excellence by a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the university-level in 2016. I was nominated for the 30-Under-30 award at the University of Central Florida in 2020 as well as the Postdoctoral Research Excellence Award at the University of California Davis in 2022.
