Current projects

    Research Director of the Qumulus project (formerly T-Party), a 10-year $45MM research collaboration with Quanta Computer, Inc. focused on the future of mobile and cloud technologies.

    Development of coureseware and content for EECS courses as part of MITx, MIT's on-line education initiative.


    Introduction to EECS II: Digital Communications Systems (6.02). An integrated introduction to electrical engineering and computer science that explores communication signals, systems and networks. [F06, S07, F07, S08, S09, F09, S10, S11]

    Computation Structures (6.004). 6.004 introduces the architecture of digital systems, emphasizing structural principles common to a wide range of technologies. [F99, S00, F00, S01, F01, S02, F02, F03, S05, S06, S07, S08, F10, F11, F12, S13, F13, S14, F14, S15]

    Introductory Digital Systems Laboratory (6.111). A hands-on introduction to current implementation techniques for digital systems, leading to a final project of the student's choice. [F04, F05, F06, F07, F08, F09]

    Multicore Systems Laboratory (6.173). Lectures and labs illustrate how to build a multicore computer system. Using a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) board, programmed with a simple multicore processor and a minimal software environment, students develop Verilog and software to implement different hardware/software designs for caches, messages, shared memory, and coordination primitives. [F10]

    Introduction to VLSI Systems (6.371). An introductory graduate-level course providing a hands-on introduction to the design and implementation of large-scale digital systems in CMOS VLSI. [F96, F02]
