I am a PhD alumnus of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland . I graduated in late 2015, and took a temporary position at SecondWrite LLC before settling at Intel.
During grad school I was funded by a NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship , advised by Dr. Rajeev Barua . Research areas which I find interesting include parallel computing, compilers, and operating systems.
