As a Research Staff Member of the Design Automation group, I design new algorithms and techniques for logic and high-level synthesis of digital circuits. My contributions result in fundamental advancements in the state-of-the-art design automation tools, thus providing differentiating technology for products and services built on IBM systems. Interacting closely with circuit and logic design leads, I identify drawbacks in the in-house state-of-the-art design automation tool, shape and develop scalable algorithms for logic and high-level synthesis with the primary goal of meeting specified performance and power consumption constraints when applied to the design of modern system architectures. I also recommend solutions and improvements that arise during the design implementation process. Finally, I collaborate with industry experts, academic professionals, and mentor summer students to a create and pursue a strategic agenda for realizing the long-term goal of a fully automated design implementation process.
