Who Am I
I am a senior at University of Nevada, Las Vegas and am studying Electrical Engineering with a minor in Applied Mathematics. I am passionate about the science and technology industry, and enjoy new and abstract concepts.
My motivation comes from constantly trying to reach my full potential which fuels me in my pursuit of Engineering. With that, I am able to adapt to a constantly changing work environment, and am able to pick up new skill sets and talents.
Currently, I am interested in Mixed Signal Integrated Circuit Design in alternative semiconductor processes. With the current market reaching the limits of silicon, we are going to need to transition to a new process. While many exist, with various advantages and disadvantages, Silicon-Germanium, for example, is one of the leaders behind low-cost, lightweight, and personal communication devices. Through the use of the Heterojunction Bipolar Junction Transistor (HBT) in this respective process, we could see a boom in all aspects of the communication industry. It is here that I believe I could bridge the gap between a new medium, and mixed signal design. I will be obtaining my undergraduate degree soon, and have a drive and want to move into graduate school. My graduate pursuit would be a mix of theoretical, and experimentation practices. I would rely on theoretical electronic and signals concepts to develop a functioning design solving a particular issue, implement a layout via a VLSI CAD Suite, and then build a test PCB to verify design work. The results could then be published, and released into the public space.
