Industry Associate Professor
Dr. Omar Mansour is an Industry Associate Professor at the department of Computer Science and Engineering at New York University. Dr. Mansour was formerly a lead software engineer at Crestron Electronics. Prior to joining NYU, he has been an assistant professor at Wentworth Institute of Technology, where he taught computer engineering courses in operating systems, object-oriented programming with C++/Java and microcontrollers with C, and where he conducted research in the area of medical ultrasound imaging.
Dr. Mansour possesses extensive industry experience in the area of embedded real-time software development for signal and image processing. He has previously worked at Intersil (1999-2000), Lucent Technologies (2000-2002, now Alcatel-Lucent) and Tyco Electronics (2002-2012, now Veoneer). At Tyco Electronics, he was one of four key software engineers who developed the first Radar-based automotive vision system capable of supporting self-driving vehicles. The system was integrated into many vehicles including those made by Daimler/Mercedes, GM, Toyota and Waymo, as well as the Carnegie Mellon vehicles that won the DARPA urban challenge.
Dr. Mansour has conducted research at Robarts Research Institute (London, Canada, 2012-2017), where he developed a novel method for high-frame-rate Doppler ultrasound imaging that resulted in multiple peer-reviewed journal and conference papers and a provisional patent. Dr. Mansour was the recipient of various scholarship awards (Ontario Graduate Scholarship, Canadian Institute of Health Fellowship and Western University graduate fellowship) and best paper presentation award at Western University’s graduate symposium.
Dr. Mansour holds a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Western University (London, Canada), a M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering from University of Southern California, a M.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of South Florida, and B.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Ain Shams University (Cairo, Egypt).
