I began my career at AMD as a Coop Product Engineer in 2008. I worked there for five semesters processing data, developing digital ATE patterns for silicon test development, and characterizing the high-speed I/O interfaces of next-generation x86 microprocessors.
During alternate semesters, while not working for AMD, I pursued engineering degrees at Georgia Tech. In 2011, I received my BS in Electrical Engineering with highest honors and a minor in Technology and Management. One year later, in 2012, I received my MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a focus on Telecommunications.
Upon graduating, I accepted a position at TI in their Product Engineer Rotation Program. Over the course of two years, I held four different positions: Product Engineer (Dallas, TX), Fab Product Engineer (Sherman, TX), A/T Product Engineer (Clark, Philippines), and Design Verification Engineer (Santa Clara, CA). This rotation program gave me experience with nearly every step of the silicon development process: pre-silicon design verification and test development, post-silicon device validation and characterization, fabrication process analysis, and A/T test solution stabilization.
After completing the rotation program, I joined the Systems Connectivity group at TI as a validation engineer. I developed automated bench methods and characterized devices using state-of-the-art electronics instrumentation.
