Short Bio

Heba Khdr received her Ph.D. (Dr.-Ing.) in Computer Science from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in July 2018 under the supervision of Prof. Jörg Henkel.
Mrs. Khdr received her B. Sc in Computer Science from Aleppo University in Syria, with excellent grade and the first rank.
She is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Chair for Embedded Systems (CES) at KIT.
Her main research interests are resource management techniques that consider power, temperature and aging issues in embedded processors.
