Hello! Welcome to the personal web page of Alex Hankin.
I am a 2nd-year PhD student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. My advisor is Dr. Mark Hempstead, and I do research as part of the Tufts Computer Architecture Lab. My research interests lie at the intersection of Non-Volatile Memory Systems, Parallel Architectures, and Thermal-Aware Computing. My dissertation research is funded by a joint Google and Intel grant. It is centered around a thermal-aware computing system for mitigating hot spots.
I was an intern at Google in Mountain View, California from January 2019 - July 2019. I worked on a domain-specific architecture for machine learning and image processing on the mobile platform.
