Alexander Hankin


I am a 4th year Electrical Engineering Ph.D. student at Tufts University advised by Prof. Mark Hempstead. My research interests vary, but most of my work has been on building architecture-level modeling and simulation tools in the areas of emerging non-volatile memories and thermal hotspots. I have completed research internships at Google and Intel.
