In April 2007 I joined Intel Corporation in Santa Clara, California, to work in the architecture team of the Embedded and Communications Group. Previously, while in grad-school at WPI, I have been an intern at Intel Massachusetts, in Hudson, where I started working on the Project Tolapai, which just recently was officially announced by Intel as the Embedded Processor EP80579. It’s a great joy to experience the big hububb around the release and to know that your work is part of the effort.
My work at Intel is centered around content processing and cryptographic acceleration for communication-centric workloads. Think of it as an offload engine that lets the main CPU save cycles do other stuff.
Before I joined Intel full-time, I was a Ph.D. student and research assistant in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, working with Dr. Berk Sunar in the Cryptography and Information Security Lab.
Other internship experiences included a brief stint at the start-up rTrust Technologies in Corvallis, Oregon, in the summer of 2001, working on Elliptic Curve Cryptography and efficient multipliers for modular arithmetic. This was a close collaboration with the Information Security Lab of Oregon State University where I worked with Dr. Çetin Koç, a professor at OSU.
Prior to coming to the U.S., I worked as an intern and a student co-op at Tara Systems GmbH, an embedded software developer in Munich, Germany. I also was an intern at the German subsidiary of Keithley Instruments, as an electronics technician.
