Researcher - Brain-inspired Computing
Almaden Research Center, San Jose, CA, USA



I joined IBM in 2010 to work on the DARPA-funded SyNAPSE Project. I am currently the hardware manager in the Brain-Inspired Computing Group at IBM Almaden Research Center. Previously, I did postdoctoral and graduate work in bioengineering at Stanford University and University of Pennsylvania, respectively.

We published a paper in Science (2014) on our chip, TrueNorth, with 1 million neurons and 256 million synapses.

We published a paper in PNAS (2016) on our algorithm, Eedn, for learning deep neural networks for TrueNorth.

We published a paper in IEEE Computer (2019) summarizing the TrueNorth project from inception to presentation of our recent 64-Million-Neuron System.
