Undergraduate Research Assistants

Anna Horstmann

Anna is a Senior pursuing her B.S. in Electrical Engineering with a concentration in Embedded Computing Systems. She is currently working alongside other undergraduates to design a digital delay locked loop in 14nm FinFET CMOS. The implications of such small-scale semiconductors make this research particularly exciting to be involved in.

Zach Chen

Zach is currently in the Silicon Systems Research Laboratory working on an all digital delay locked loop using IBM's 14nm process. He is currently an undergraduate student at the University of Washington and will finish his B.S. in Electrical Engineering June 2014, with a focus on Digital VLSI.

Quoc-Anh Vu

Coming soon

Bohan Wang

Bohan is a junior pursuing a Bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering. He is currently working on the design and testing of FinFET-based 14nm delay-locked loop. Before joining silicon system lab, Wang spent a quarter on SEAL lab working on the Diet data record systems prototype. Wang has interests in both analog and digital VLSI design. He is planning to go to graduate school after graduation. When not dealing with circuits or writing codes, he enjoys running, reading and traveling.
