Professor Bashir M Al-Hashimi is part of the Institute for Life Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Professor Bashir M. Al-Hashimi, FREng is an ARM Professor of Computer Engineering at the University of Southampton and Dean of the Faculty of Physical Sciences and Engineering. He has a worldwide reputation for research innovation into energy-efficient and reliable embedded systems, evidenced by numerous national and international recognitions.

In 2013, he was elected Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering for his contribution to the design and testing of low-power electronics: Fellows of the Academy comprise the UK’s most eminent and distinguished engineers and in 2009, he was elected fellow of the IEEE for significant contributions to the design and test of low-power circuits and systems. He also holds a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award (2014-2019).

He is currently the Project Leader of the £5.6M PRiME programme: 'Power-efficient, Reliable, Many-core Embedded Systems' (2012-17), funded by the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). PRiME brings together electronics engineers and computer scientists to investigate the design and implementation of future high-performance energy-efficient and dependable embedded systems with many-core processors.He is also founder and director of the Pervasive Systems Research Centre for multidisciplinary research in Electronics and Computer Science and Co-Director of the Industry-University ARM-ECS Research Centre. In 2013, he led a research consortium funded by EPSRC investigating Battery-Free Electronics, one of the themes of the UK Microelectronics Design Grand Challenges.   

He is Editor-in-Chief of the IET Journal: Computers and Digital Techniques and in 2008 received the first Research Journal Editor Achievement award from the IET for his outstanding leadership. He served as the General Chair of the IEE European Test Symposium (2006), Design Automation and Test in Europe (DATE) Technical Programme Chair 2009 and was General Chair of DATE 2011. He has published over 300 technical papers, authored or co-authored 5 books and has graduated 31 PhD students.
