Research Interests

I teach advanced hardware/software computer engineering courses for Graduate Students and Undergraduate Seniors. My classes focus on developing high-performance computing applications for SoC FPGAs from start to finish. The course covers design planning, software/hardware modeling, practical theory, architecture development, simulation, synthesis, and coding best-practices. My philosophy is to guide students in understanding the implications for their design architecture at every point as it relates to performance in terms of timing, area, power, and temperature.
