Alexander R. Hankin

Research Scientist, Intel Labs. Greater Boston Area.

Hi, I’m a Research Scientist in the Strategic CAD Lab (SCL) in the IP Design and Platforms (IDP) Group in Intel Labs. Before joining Intel Labs, I was a Postdoc at Harvard where I was mentored by David Brooks and Gu-Yeon Wei in the Architecture, Circuits, and Compilers Group. I earned my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, USA in May 2022. My research interests are primarily at the computer system-design and computer-architecture level. In particular, I am interested in novel modeling and analysis methods for emerging systems/technologies. I have experience working on research in the following sub-areas: embedded non-volatile memories, thermal hotspots, ion-trap quantum computers, and microservices.

My CV is available here.
