I'm a PhD student in Dr. Mark Hempstead's Power Aware Computing Group at Drexel University. We research techniques to improve processor performance and energy efficiency. Previously, I've interned at Samsung at their Austin research center, working on a novel power-characterization methodology for their custom ARM cores. Before that, I spent 4 years working at IBM as a circuit design engineer, working on their high performance Z-series mainframes (z10 - z12 processors). I also had a 2 year stint as a systems engineer for Motorola, designing digital cable systems. I got my BSc in Electrical and Systems engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 2003, and an MSc in Microelectronic Engineering from Columbia University in 2004.
