Loai Danial

Loai is a PhD student. His research focuses on innovative approaches inspired by neuro-biology/cell-biology to design intelligent (reconfigurable) data converters and mixed-signals integrated circuits using hybrid CMOS-memristor. An interdisciplinary research that combines: VLSI circuits and architectures, mixed-signal solid state IC, sub-threshold analog design, machine learning, emerging memory technologies (memristors), neuromorphic and cytomorphic computing.

Loai received his B.Sc degree in electrical engineering from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology at 2014. From 2013 to 2016 he was with IBM labs – Haifa as a hardware research student. He is a teaching assistant (in charge) of introduction to VLSI circuits course (046237) from 2015 to present. He received the 2017 Hershel Rich Technion innovation award, and have been awarded with a scholarship for outstanding PhD students, members of the Arab Society for the year 2017, and for M.Sc students for the years 2015-2016.
