Amirali Amirsoleimani

Assistant Professor of Computer Engineering, P.Eng


Electrical Engineering & Computer Science


Amirali Amirsoleimani is an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Lassonde School of Engineering. He received his PhD in electrical and computer engineering (ECE) from University of Windsor in December 2017 and completed his postdoctoral research fellowship at the Edward S. Rogers Sr. Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Toronto in July 2021. His current research interests include application specific processing units, in-memory computing, neuromorphic hardware design and RRAM-based accelerators for artificial intelligence. He received IEEE Larry K. Wilson award for IEEE region 7 in 2016. He was also the recipient of a best poster honorable mention award at International Joint Conference on Neural Network (IJCNN) 2017 in Alaska, USA. He is a guest editor in Frontiers in Electronics and Frontiers in Nanotechnology journals and is also serving as a reviewer for several electrical and computer engineering journals including IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I (TCASI), TCAS II, TNANO, TVLSI, TED, Frontiers in Neuro-Science, Microelectronics journal, Neural Computing and Applications.
