I believe that modern digital designers must have broad knowledge of the entire design stack, from devices to software. My research interests include low-power VLSI design and fine-grained dynamic frequency and voltage scaling for energy-efficient processors.
I am part of the Hurricane (nee Raven) project team. We are designing energy-efficient processors with fine-grained DVFS. We taped out a chip in 28nm FD-SOI in September 2013. It worked pretty well, so we taped out a few more.
I have some project ideas that could be a great fit for capable, motivated Berkeley undergraduates. If you're interested, please get in touch!

Teaching and Outreach
In Fall 2015, I was on the teaching staff for the pilot of EE16B, a new introductory engineering course sequence at Berkeley.
I am the fearless leader of Electrical Engineering Outreach @ Berkeley. We orchestrate science demos for students at underserved Bay Area schools. Contact me if you're interested in getting involved or in a visit to your classroom.
I taught two years of Algebra II at Cesar Chavez High School in Washington, DC.
I grew up in New England and studied engineering at Harvey Mudd College, a small, highly-rated technical school in Southern California (I was advised by David Money Harris). I enjoy hiking, politics, and board games that are too long.
Most of my salary as a graduate student has been paid by the federal government . Thanks, American readers, for your support.
