Reza Salkhordeh is a postdoctoral researcher at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz since Nov. 2018. He received his B.Sc. from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad in 2011, M.Sc and Ph.D. from Sharif University of Technology (SUT) in 2013 and 2018, respectively. During his Ph.D., he mentored four M.Sc. and six B.Sc theses. His Ph.D. thesis is titled "Optimization of Operating System to Employ Emerging Memory Technologies". He was a member of PPoPP'18 artifact evaluation committee and a reviewer for Elsevier Microprocessors and Microsystems (2016) and Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems (2018). He was a member of Iran’s National Elites Foundation. His research interests are storage systems design, solid-state drives, non-volatile memories, operating systems design, and caching architectures.
