Masoud Daneshtalab, Professor

Masoud Daneshtalab ( is currently a Professor at Mälardalen University (MDH) and leads the Heterogeneous System research group ( He joined KTH as European Marie Curie Fellow in 2014. Before that, he was a university lecturer and group leader at University of Turku in Finland from 2012-2014.

He has represented Sweden in the management committee of the EU COST Actions IC1202: Timing Analysis on Code-Level (TACLe). Since 2016 he is in Euromicro board of Director and a member of the HiPEAC network.

His research interests include interconnection networks, hardware/software co-design, deep learning acceleration and evolutionary optimization. He has published 2 book, 8 book chapters, and over 200 refereed international journals and conference papers within H-index 28. He has served in Technical Program Committees of all major conferences in his area including DAC, NOCS, DATE, ASPDAC, ICCAD, HPCC, ReCoSoC, SBCCI, ESTIMedia, VLSI Design, ICA3PP, SOCC, VDAT, DSD, PDP, ICESS, Norchip, MCSoC, CADS, EUC, DTIS, NESEA, CASEMANS, NoCArc, MES, PACBB, MobileHealth, and JEC-ECC.

He has co-led several research projects including: SafeDeep, AutoDeep, DeepMaker, DESTINE, PROVIDENT, HERO, AGENT, CUBRIC, ERoT, and µBrain with a total estimation of 114 MSEK (11 MEuro).
