|I received a BS (1993) and MS (1994) in Electrical Engineering from Florida State University and a PhD (2003) in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Tennessee.
I joined the ECE faculty at Clemson in the Fall 2006 semester. I am a senior member of IEEE and actively involved in mentoring programs for young scientists and engineers.
From 1994 to 2006, I worked at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) where I was involved in a variety of research activities including high-energy and nuclear physics instrumentation (Spallation Neutron Source at ORNL, the PHENIX particle physics experiment at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), and the Nuclear Weapons Inspection System (NWIS) program), sub-micron CMOS circuit design (analog, digital, and mixed signal), fault tolerant sensor networks, software defined radio, and high-performance and reconfigurable computing for real-time systems and scientific computation.
In 2004, I began collaborations with the now Future Technologies Group at ORNL where we conducted research on emerging computing architectures including Reconfigurable Computing. Here at Clemson, I have continued to be involved with research at ORNL with some of the top research scientists in the country.
While at the University of Tennessee, in addition to my research at ORNL, I conducted research in the Microelectronic Systems Laboratory in the area of High-Performance Reconfigurable Computers. While at Florida State University, I was a research assistant with Dr. Alan George in the High-performance Computing and Simulation Research Laboratory, which has now expanded to include a lab both at the FAMU/FSU College of Engineering and at the University of Florida.
My current research activities and interests include Reconfigurable and High-Performance Computing where applications include scientific workloads, embedded systems, data mining, image processing, target and anomaly detection, and command/communication/control (C3) integration. Other interests include Distributed Sensor Networks, System Modeling & Analysis, High Speed Data Acquisition Systems and Software Defined Radio. I am also active in OpenFPGA where they are working to develop standards for the use of FPGAs and Reconfigurable Computing.
