Undergraduate Research Assistant

UNLV Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering - Las Vegas, NV

Under R. Jacob Baker, in conjunction with previous work done in On Semiconductor's C5 process, I am striving to design new and existing circuit topologies in Global Foundries' 8HP 130 nm process by the way of the Hetero-junction Bipolar Transistor (HBT). These ASICs house electro-optic circuitry such as Transimpedance Amplifiers (TIA) and Avalanche Photodiodes (APD) for use in high-speed photonic systems for a wide variety of defense applications.

Key Contributions:

  • Created an input clock circuit using various PLLs on an FPGA that would output eight equally shifted signals for use in conjunction with additional circuitry.
  • Characterized and reported custom data on in-house made Avalanching Photodiodes (APDs) for military grants.
  • Worked to design masks to integrate multiple designs in Global Foundries’ 8HP 130 nm process into a single functioning chip through the Cadence CAD Suite.

Electrical Engineering Intern

JT3

Characterized performance envelops of various new EtherCAT modules set to replace legacy infrastructure, fixed all anomalies present in devices, and worked in tandem to develop calibration routines to individually increase a module’s accuracy.

Key Contributions:

  • Modeled calibration routines via testing to implement into finished board designs.
  • Provided key insight behind inaccuracies and guided team towards increased performance.
  • Produced technical documentation detailing efforts and outcomes.

Electromagnetic Engineering Intern

Kyma Technologies - Raleigh, NC

Worked on a team tasked with refining, characterizing, and optimizing an electromagnetic sensor for the market. The sensor is able to detect magnetic and electric fields at a single point in space in real time. A few applications include detecting shorts in electrical systems, EMI testing, and power electronics.

Key Contributions:

  • Worked under a well distinguished Electrical Engineering Professor, Robert Schill, to characterize the behavior of the sensor.
  • Assisted in developing a coating for the sensor with desirable electrical characteristics that would not impede performance.
  • Wrote various Matlab and Excel scripts that would speed up the data analysis, and would later package them into standalone applications for various uses.
  • Created various reports to inform company of progress made, breakthroughs, and qualitative data.

Peer Research Coach

UNLV University Libraries - Las Vegas, NV

Trained in the various databases related to the UNLV curriculum so that I may educate peers about subject specific research. Serve as an ambassador for the University Librarians by working on multi-disciplinary teams to reach desired campus goals.

Key Contributions:

  • Project managed various groups to finalized product that benefited the student body as well as the libraries.
  • Taught various undergraduate English classes on the research process, databases, and pitfalls within.
