Hamed Tabkhi

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, William States Lee College of Engineering, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC). I am also the founder and director of the Transformative Computer Systems and Architecture Research (TeCSAR) lab at UNC Charlotte. At TeCSAR, I focus on bringing recent advances in machine learning, deep learning, and data analytics to enhance the safety, health, and overall well-being of our communities. Few notable examples are AI for public safety, smart transportation, and health care. My research has been supported by various federal and state agencies, as well as private industries. Notable research projects are $2M NSF/S&CC grant and a $500K NSF/CPS grant. In both projects, I lead a multidisciplinary effort to bring decentralized real-time edge video analytics to address safety challenges by offering situational awareness, and feedback information to workers and community residents.

I am continuously searching for talented, self-motivated Ph.D. and M.Sc. students. If you are interested in joining TeCSAR and working with me, click here.
