I grew up in Bridgewater, NJ, where my parents still live. Bridgewater is about 30 minutes north of Princeton, 45 minutes southwest of Newark, and about 1 1/2 hours northeast of Philadelphia.
I went to the University of California - Berkeley in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science . I graduated with a B.S. in 1990.
On July 28th, 1990 I married Susan Elizabeth Stolte, the girl next door (well, actually about 1 mile away).
I attended the University of Washington in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering . I received my M.S. in 1992, and my Ph.D. in 1995. My advisors were Gaetano Borriello and Carl Ebeling, and my thesis was "Multi-FPGA Systems" . I was funded by an AT&T Bell Laboratories Fellowship.
This is the U.W. CSE VLSI/CAD group at the 1995 farewell picnic.
From October 1995 to September 1999 I was an Assistant Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Northwestern University .
In December 1998 we bought our first home, in Evanston, IL.
Since September 1999 I have been an Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering at The University of Washington.
On November 18th, 1999 our first child, Lindsey Madison Hauck, was born.
