Fahad Saeed is a Tenured Associate Professor in the School of Computing and Information Sciences at Florida International University (FIU), Miami FL and is the director of Saeed Lab at FIU. Dr. Saeed’s research interests are at the intersection of machine-learning, high performance computing and real-world applications, especially in computational biology.
Dr. Saeed has published 70+ peer-reviewed research papers in leading proceedings, and journals, and 1 Book Chapter, and edited 4 Conference Proceedings, and 3 special issue journals. His research is supported by highly competitive grants mainly from National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH). He has secured over US$ 2.4 Million (directly went to his lab) in external research funds as principal investigator and about US$ 2.61 Million overall since 2015. He was awarded the NSF Research Initiation Initiative (CRII) Award bestowed to young and promising scientists in the first two years of their tenure-track position. Most recently he was awarded the NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award which is NSF’s most prestigious award in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education. His research has been supported by WMU, NVIDIA, Intel/Altera, National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Prior to joining FIU, Prof. Saeed was a tenure-track Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering and Department of Computer Science at Western Michigan University (WMU), Kalamazoo Michigan since Jan 2014. He was tenured and promoted to the rank of Associate Professor at WMU in August 2018. Dr. Saeed was a Post-Doctoral Fellow and then a Research Fellow in the Systems Biology Center at National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda MD from Aug 2010 to June 2011 and from June 2011 to January 2014 respectively. He received his PhD in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in 2010. He has served as a visiting scientist in world-renowned prestigious institutions such as Department of Bio-Systems Science and Engineering (D-BSSE), ETH Zürich, Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB) and Epithelial Systems Biology Laboratory (ESBL) at National Institutes of Health (NIH) Bethesda, Maryland.
