Hello! Since the start of Fall 2014, I have been a member of the teaching faculty (level II) in the ECE department at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, appointed under the FITC grant from the State of Florida. Before that, since start of Fall 2012, I was an Associate in Engineering in the position of Instructor & Coordinator of Engineering Retention, appointed through the Dean’s office in. Before that, starting Fall 2010, I had a half-time appointment as a non-tenure track faculty member in the ECE dept. I am presently (in 2014-2015) in my fourth year of teaching & coordinating the ECE Senior Design Project course.
From late 2008 through Spring 2012, I was also helping develop custom data acquisition electronics for a novel low-cost, distributed cosmic-ray detection system in the Astroparticle & Cosmic Radiation Detector Research & Development Laboratory in the Department of Physics at Florida A&M University under an NSF CREST grant. In Fall 2008-Spring 2009, I was a Postdoctoral Associate working under Dr. Uwe-Meyer Baese, also in the ECE department. We developed a novel quantum computer simulator that uses only linear space (most existing ones require exponential space).
From 2004-2007, I was a
tenure-track faculty member (assistant professor) in the ECE department,
teaching computer engineering courses in subjects such as digital
logic, microprocessors and computer
architecture. From 1999-2004, I was an assistant professor in
the CISE department in the University of Florida’s College of Engineering, where I taught discrete math, computer
organization, and computer architecture. At both schools, I have
occasionally also taught my own unique research survey course (technical
elective) on the physical limits
of computing. My graduate degrees
(M.S. and Ph.D.) in Electrical &
Computer Engineering are from MIT, and my
B.S. is in Symbolic Systems from Stanford University.
Since 1996, my primary research interests have been in the areas of (1) the fundamental physics of computing (with an emphasis on the study of fundamental physical limits on computing), (2) novel nanoelectronic and quantum-electronic technologies for digital logic, and (3) fundamental new computing paradigms that will be important for efficient computing at the nanoscale, including reversible computing and quantum computing. I also have an interest in computational methods for multi-domain physical simulation of nanoelectronic devices (in support of the aforementioned goals), and in technologies and infrastructures for high-performance computing that are suitable for supporting such applications. Finally, I have an interest in the development of new secure electronic voting methods, and in digital currencies such as Bitcoin and other applications of distributed consensus technology (see my recent talks).
