Dr. Gul N. Khan graduated in Electrical Engineering from UET, Lahore and completed his master’s in computer engineering from Syracuse University. After working as research associate at Arizona State University, he joined Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, University of London and completed his Ph.D. He also worked as research associate for the Endoscope Automation project at Imperial College. Later on, Dr. Khan joined the computer systems engineering faculty of RMIT University, Melbourne. In 1997, Dr. Khan moved to Singapore and joined the computer system engineering faculty at Nanyang Technological University. Dr. Khan moved to Canada in 2000 and worked as Associate Professor of computer engineering at University of Saskatchewan before joining Ryerson University (Toronto Metropolitan University). He served as Program Director of Computer Engineering from 2004-2015. Dr. Khan has authored/edited a book entitled “Embedded and Networking Systems: Design, Software and Implementation” and he has published more than 125 refereed papers in journals, conference, symposium, and workshop proceedings as well as book chapters. Dr. Khan also hold three US patents. Currently, he is a Professor of Computer Engineering at Toronto Metropolitan (formerly Ryerson) University. His research interests include Embedded Systems, CPU-GPU Systems, Heterogeneous Computing, Application Profiling and Tuning, HW-SW Co-design, NoC Design and SoC Synthesis.
