RA Opennings

Prof. Zhang is looking for highly-motivated Ph.D. students to join her lab. There are multiple openings for the 2019 academic year.

The research of VLSI Arc Lab spans the areas of digital storage and communications, VLSI architecture design, security, and signal processing. Our research translates theoretical advancements to highly efficient practical implementations through integrated algorithmic and architectural optimizations. The focuses of current research include coding schemes and system architecture design for next-generation memories and hyper-speed data analytics, hardware security, and machine learning. As it has been proved from Dr. Zhang’s academic and industry experience, such research leads to novel techniques and designs that have great impacts on practical systems. Students in this research area are highly valued by both academic institutes and high-tech companies.

Good math and analytical background is required. Prior experience on digital logic design, error-correcting coding, cryptography, security, or related topics is preferred.

Interested students may send CV and transcript in pdf to zhang.8952 at General application can be submitted through
