I'm at UT Austin studying full-time for a master's degree in electrical and computer engineering with emphasis on VLSI design. Before starting here, I worked as a professional electrical engineer designing safety-critical control systems for oil refineries in Los Angeles, which was a nice increase in sun exposure after finishing my five-year term in the Navy as a submarine officer.
In my copious free time (ha!), I've been known to take on projects for a certain awesome roboticist.
On December 17, 2016, I signed the neveragain.tech pledge, which states in part: "We refuse to participate in the creation of databases of identifying information for the United States government to target individuals based on race, religion, or national origin."
December 2017: gem5build.sh is a build script for the gem5 emulator, the SPEC CPU2006 benchmarks, and the SimPoint program phase analysis tool. Developed to allow replication of A. Jaleel, K.B. Theobald, S.C. Steely, Jr., and J. Emer, "High performance cache replacement using re-reference interval prediction (RRIP)", in Proc. 37th International Symposium on Computer Architecture (ISCA '10), Saint-Malo, France, June 2010, pp. 60-71.
