Esam El-Araby was born in Assiut, Egypt, and received his B.Sc. degree in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering and his M.Sc. (Highest Diploma) degree in Automatic Control and Computer Engineering from Assiut University, Egypt, in 1991, and 1997 respectively. He received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Engineering from the George Washington University (GWU), USA, in 2005, and 2010 respectively. Dr. El-Araby joined the Catholic University of America as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 2010. Prior to that, he worked at the High Performance Computing Laboratory (HPCL) at GWU as well as the NSF Center for High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (NSF-CHREC). His research work was mainly funded by organizations such as DoD, DARPA, NSF, and NASA and was published in national and international gatherings organized by IEEE, ACM, and NASA. His publication record includes a book chapter on High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (HPRC) systems and remote sensing, 6 journal papers, and 33 conference papers. His research interests include reconfigurable computing, hybrid/heterogeneous architectures, evolvable hardware, performance evaluation, digital signal/image processing, and hyperspectral imagery remote sensing.
