Prospective Students

Join our team!

I am looking for motivated students who are interested in deep learning systems and/or reconfigurable computing. Feel free to email** me with the subject line “prospective student”, and include your (1) CV, (2) transcript and (3) some rough thoughts on what you are interested in researching during your PhD. When you are applying to the Cornell ECE PhD program, please mention my name in your statement of purpose if you would like me to consider your application.

Prerequisites: Must have a strong desire to learn and an ambition to change the way we do computing!

A strong candidate will have demonstrated:

  1. Academic excellence: High grades and ideally ranked within the top 5 of their class from a reputable undergraduate institution.
  2. Research potential: A publication (in-progress is fine) at a top-tier conference or involvement in a significant research project.

Note: A master’s degree helps to show a consistent academic/research profile but it is not required.

My group is located in New York City at Cornell Tech, however, Cornell has a single PhD admissions system as described here.

** Note: I thought I can keep up with email but I have been proven wrong. I literally receive hundreds of emails every year from prospective students. If I don’t reply to you, please don’t take it personally and don’t be discouraged from applying to Cornell.
