Graduate Fellow: Benjamin Keller (2015)

Benjamin Keller from Pawtucket, Rhode Island

Studying at UC Berkeley

Research: Ben is working to realize more energy-efficient digital design through optimization of entire hardware stack, from architecture to devices.  Smarter algorithms for dynamic voltage and frequency scaling, coupled with tightly integrated on-chip regulators that achieve nanosecond switching and high efficiently, have the potential to reduce energy consumption of a wide range of hardware applications.

Bio: Ben Keller is a 3rd-year Ph.D. student in Electrical Engineering UC Berkeley co-advised by Professors Bora Nikolic and Krste Asanovic. He received his B.S. in Engineering from Harvey Mudd College in June 2010. His current research focuses on novel circuits, architectures, and algorithms to realize fine-grained dynamic voltage and frequency scaling for energy-efficient computation. He is a member of the Berkeley Wireless Research Center and the ASPIRE Lab.  Ben interned for NVIDIA in the ASIC VLSI research group in 2014.
