Hello! Welcome to the personal web page of Alex Hankin.
I am a 3rd-year PhD candidate and research assistant 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 (or TCAL, for short). My research interests span a range of topics including Non-Volatile Memory, Image Signal Processing Accelerators, and Power/Thermal-Aware Architecture. My dissertation research is funded by a joint Google-Intel project. It is centered around designing and developing an architecture-based Hotspot mitigation technique for modern chips.
In the Winter and Spring of 2019, I was an intern at Google in Mountain View, California. I worked on a domain-specific architecture for machine learning and image processing on the mobile platform.
