Hello! I'm Ava, a Ph.D student at U.C. Berkeley studying physical electronic devices under Professor Sayeef Salahuddin in the Laboratory for Emerging and Exploratory Devices. My current research interests include nonvolatile ferroelectric CMOS-compatible memories, and in particular, their architectural potential for realizing brain-inspired computing paradigms and energy-efficient hardware for deep learning. I am also generally interested in novel electronic devices that leverage unique materials and physics of operation.
Previously, I received a B.S in Electrical & Computer Engineering as well as a minor in Computer Science from Cornell University in May of 2016. As an undergraduate, I worked with Professor Huili (Grace) Xing, Professor Vivek Subramanian, and Professor Alyosha Molnar.
