About me

Position and Duties

I am Professor in Electronic Systems Design (with specialization in Dependable and Autonomous Systems) at Division of Electronics and Embedded Systems, Department of Electrical Engineering, School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS).

I was appointed as Program Director for the Embedded Systems master program at KTH in 2019 and have been taking this role since then. I am also Director of Studies at Division of Electronics and Embedded Systems.

My name in Chinese is 鲁中海.

Research

My research spans from system-on-chip/network-on-chip, computer architecture, design automation of VLSI chips and systems, smart edge computing, to dependable and autonomous cyber-physical systems & Internet of Things.

Currently my research group is working on Embedded Intelligence, applying artificial intelligence (AI) for computer architecture and embedded systems, and making AI power-efficient, fault-tolerant and dependable.

I received research gifts from Intel Corporation in 2011, 2012, 2013, and secured individual grants from the Swedish Research Council twice (the starting grant in 2014 and project grant in 2020).

I have made some contributions to the research fields, currently over 200 scientific papers (roughly 40% in journals and 60% in peer-reviewed conferences).  My research papers were nominated as Best Paper Candidate at HPCA’2018, NOCS'2013 and ICCAD’2009. I received the Best Paper Award at NOCS’2015 and EU HiPEAC (High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation) Paper Awards.  Recently our paper in IEEE Transactions on Computers was recognized as Featured Paper, September 2020.

My publication list appears in the online computer science bibliography (DBLP) and Google Scholar.

I serve as Associate Editor for ACM Transactions on Architecture and Code Optimization (TACO). I was honored to be a General Chair for HiPEAC’2017 held in Stockholm, TPC Chair for NOCS’2017 held in Seoul, South Korea, and General Chair for NOCS’2018 held in Turin, Italy.

Educational Background

I received BSc. from Beijing Normal University in June 1989, and earned MSc. in June 2002 and PhD. in March 2007 from KTH Royal Institute of Technology. After PhD, I conducted postdoctoral research at KTH. In October 2012, I received MBA in Innovation and Growth from the Business and Innovation Development unit, University of Turku, Finland.
