Andrew S. Waterman


Home Research Coursework Teaching
I'm a displaced Orleanian and Ph.D. candidate in the ASPIRE Lab at Cal. My principal research interests are computer architecture, VLSI design, and architectural support for operating systems.

Alongside my colleagues, Yunsup, Krste, and Dave, I designed RISC-V, an open, free instruction set architecture. My goal is to make RISC-V the standard ISA for industrial implementation and education.

I received my MS in Computer Science from Cal in 2011 and my BSE in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Duke in 2008.
