Dr. Hassan Mostafa received his Bachelor of Science degree (with honors) and his Master of Science degree in electronics and electrical communications engineering from Cairo University, Egypt, in 2001 and 2005, respectively. He obtained his Doctor of Philosophy degree in electrical engineering from the University of Waterloo, Canada, in 2011.
Mostafa is currently an adjunct assistant professor at the Center for Nanoelectronics and Devices (CND) at Zewail City of Science and Technology, Egypt. He is also an assistant professor at the electronics and electrical communications engineering department, Cairo University, Egypt.
From 2011 to 2012, he worked as a research associate at the electrical engineering department at the University of Toronto, Canada. During this time, he worked in the design of the next generation FPGA funded by Fujitsu research labs in Japan.
Mostafa has authored and coauthored over 25 technical papers published in refereed international conferences and journals. His current research interests include next generation FPGA design, time-based high-speed Analog to Digital Converters (ADCs), nano memories with emphasis on magnetic memories and memristors, energy harvesting, and design for yield and reliability at the nanometer regime.
Mostafa was the recipient of the NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship Award in Canada, Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS), Ontario Scholarship for Science and Technology (OGSST), University of Toronto Distinguished Research Associate Award, and the Waterloo Institute of Nanotechnology (WIN) Innovative Award.
Dr. Mostafa is a technical reviewer for a number of technical journals and conferences, including the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I and II (TCAS-I and TCAS-II), IEEE Transactions on VLSI (TVLSI), IEEE Transactions on Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM), ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems (TODAES), and Journal of Circuits, Systems, and Computers (JCSC).
