Short Bio

Nour Sayed received her PhD degree (Dr.-Ing.) in Computer Science from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany in 19.07.2019 under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Mehdi B. Tahoori. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Chair of Dependable Nano Computing (CDNC), KIT. Her main research lies in architectures for high performance, low-power and reliable computing based on emerging spintronic technologies (STT-MRAM).

Mrs. Sayed received her B.Sc. degree in Informatics Engineering from Aleppo University, Syria in 2007 with a very good note and First Rank. In 2015, she received her M.Sc. in Computer Science from KIT, Germany.
