Introduction

Although I'm trying to make this page have to do with everything I'm doing and learning, at the moment I find it easier to develop useful pages based on computer science topics rather than circuit design. Now that I'm a graduate student studying integrated circuit design, I should be able to make some useful discoveries and nifty circuits worth sharing with everyone.

Computer Science

Although I am studying to be an Electrical Engineer, my hobby is computer programming. Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately), I'm best at making algorithms and coding them into programming languages that I know, rather than finishing entire programs. When I do start on projects to build programs, I often find myself making a tree with the end project at the top, and all of the support components branching down. I then work up from the lowest level up, testing everything thoroughly as I climb up to make sure everything works properly. This helps to eliminate the problem with having an overwhelming number of errors at the end of a project. I'm a firm believer in correct coding at the start to avoid excessive mending of the pieces at the end.

Electrical Engineering

I'm a graduate student at UCLA (University of California at Los Angeles) studying integrated circuits. For this reason, I suspect that I will have links to some great papers soon. I have done some tinkering with bread board designs, however I have never thought them to be anything better than basic. If I find a design that I believe has enough merit to be shared, I'll be sure to have a link to it on this page.

Resume

This is a collection of information that an employer or similarly background critical person would like to know about me.

Links

I derive my experiences from people I meet, things I do, articles and books I read, and other sources of enlightenment. Some of these exist on the WWW and I would like to share their location with anyone else who might benefit from their existance.
