Undergraduate Research Assistant - Electrical and Computer Engineering


The student will be part of a project that aims to study how to utilize emerging memory technologies, such as 3D XPoint technology,  for persistent applications. Research assistants will conduct literature review and read through background material, then work on emulating new memory technologies and study how to use them for running persistent applications.

By the end of the term, the student should write a report that documents the progress and findings of this study. The main goal of this project is to introduce students on current issues and bottlenecks for using emerging memory technologies for persistent applications.
