Prospective Students

I am always interested in working with bright, motivated Masters and PhD students, so feel free to contact me with your CV—after you have applied for admission to McGill—if you have similar research interests. Please indicate your area of interest, as well as any relevant programming and digital system design experience.

Unfortunately, at this time I'm unable to take on summer interns outside of McGill's 16-week Summer Undergraduate Research in Engineering program.

About Me

I am an assistant professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at McGill University. My objective is to advance a research agenda that develops novel architecture, methodology and design techniques for efficiently addressing emerging safety and resilience challenges in computer systems, specifically targeting embedded cyber-physical systems in the medical, automotive and distributed sensing and control domains.

I received my BS in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Math from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in May 2003. In May 2005, I received my MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, under Professor JoAnn Paul. In August 2009 I completed my PhD work in the same department, under Professor Don Thomas.

After completing my PhD, I worked with Professor Kevin Skadron as a Research Associate in the Computer Science Department at the University of Virginia.

I live in Côte Saint-Luc, Québec with my wife Sarina, son Micah, and daughter Junia.
