Bagherzadeh, Nader


B.S., University of Texas, Austin, Electrical Engineering, 1977 
M.S., University of Texas, Austin, Electrical Engineering, 1979 
Ph.D., University of Texas, Austin, Computer Engineering, 1987


Low-power and embedded digital signal processing, computer architecture, computer graphics and VLSI design. 

Within the area of embedded digital signal processing, Bagherzadeh is interested in the design and VLSI development of reconfigurable processor architectures and their algorithm mapping for high-performance and low-power applications in mobile communications. This technology can be used for 3G and 4G cellular phones, as well as other telecommunications systems. In the area of computer graphics, he has been involved in the development of a new scheme for creating computer-generated three-dimensional models of a scene based on previously recorded images captured with a standard digital video camera. These models can be used for military and civilian simulator applications, as well as movie special effects. In the area of low-power system design, Bagherzadeh has developed a software tool for scheduling and planning mission tasks to achieve power and performance objectives. This technology is targeted for planetary missions of autonomous spacecraft as well as for unmanned military vehicles.
