Dr. Tarek Taha is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Dayton. His research interests are in Neuromorphic Computing and High Performance Computing. He received his BSEE, MSEE, and Ph.D. from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1996, 1998, and 2002 respectively. He also received a BA from DePauw University in 1996.
Dr. Taha is a recipient of an NSF CAREER Award. He has spent several summers working at the NSA in Baltimore, MD and the Air Force Research Labs in Dayton, OH and in Rome, NY.
At the University of Dayton, Dr. Taha leads the Parallel Cognitive Systems Laboratory. The lab is specialized in biologically inspired computing systems (neuromorphic computing), high performance parallel computing, and the interface between these two areas. There is a strong emphasis to apply the research to autonomous systems.
In neuromorphic computing, the lab is examining all aspects of designing these systems including:
In high performance parallel computing, the lab is examining:
