Saad Mohammed Saleh

I'm an Assistant professor, working at Department of Electronic Engineering, College of Engineering, University of Diyala. My BSc degree was from of University of Baghdad, College of Engineering, Department of Electrical Engineering. I got an MSc Degree in Electronic and Communication Engineering from College of Engineering, Al-Mustansiriya University. Also, I got a PhD degree in Electronic Engineering from Newcastle university, UK, 2013. My research interests are: Designing and implementation of Image processing algorithms and architectures, Data Transforms architectures, Parallel architectures. Further, I have great interest and experience in Database system analysis and design using MS-Access, SQL, Java and C-Sharp, and Web development using ASP.net. I, also, have an experience in Macros coding in MS-Excel and Access using VBA.
