Suhaib Fahmy leads the Connected Systems Research Group within the School of Engineering at Warwick, where he is Reader in Computer Engineering. He graduated from Imperial College London in 2003 with an MEng in Information Systems Engineering, and in 2008 with a PhD in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. From 2007 to 2009, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at CTVR, Trinity College Dublin and Visiting Research Engineer at Xilinx Research Labs, Ireland. He was Assistant Professor in the School of Computer Engineering at Nanyang Technological University from 2009 to 2015.

Research interests

His research explores the use of reconfigurable computing systems in a connected context, from embedded to the datacenter, across a range of application domains. Working with FPGAs for well over a decade, he has explored how they can be virtualised to support more flexible exploitation of their computational efficiency and how computational capability can be added at the network interface to enhance system capabilities. At the Turing Institute, he is investigating how this interplay between computation and communication can be exploited to address large scale problems, and how real-time analytics capability can be achieved at scale. 

Achievements and awards

Dr Fahmy was a recipient of the Best Paper Award at the IEEE Conference on Field Programmable Technology in 2012, the IBM Faculty Award in 2013 and 2017, and the ACM TODAES Best Paper Award in 2019. He is a senior member of the ACM and IEEE and Chartered Engineer and Member of the IET.
