Welcome to the Circuit Research Lab (CRL) at the University of Texas, Austin. We are located in the Engineering Education and Research Center (EER) within the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department, Cockrell School of Engineering. Our research is focused on devices, circuits and architectures for machine learning hardware accelerators, in-memory computing, emerging logic/memory nano-devices, heterogeneous and 3D integrated circuits, hardware security, rad-hard and cryogenic computing.
There are multiple positions available for prospective graduate students. Please refer to the publications page for ongoing research projects. Feel free to send a note to Jaydeep along with your latest CV. Prospective students having strong background in above mentioned areas are encouraged to apply. Please check UT ECE graduate programs for more details.
