Hardware Engineer, Intel Architecture Group
Santa Clara, CA
"The biggest misconception that I think people have about Intel is that we work all the time and never have fun. People do work hard here, but they also know how to relax and have a good time."
What's a cool opportunity or project I've had while working at Intel?
One of the first things I worked on as a rotation engineer was mechanical modeling related to our next-generation photolithography technologies. This was cool because it was part of Intel’s efforts to extend Moore's law even further into the future.
How do I give back to my community?
Once a week I tutor middle school kids in Sunnyvale as a part of Intel Involved. It's great to see the students' progress as the year goes on.
Why do I think Intel is a great place to work?
I think Intel is great because I have the opportunity to work with a great team on products that will appear in the marketplace (unlike the research world).
What do I do when I’m NOT at work?
I like to spend time with family and friends, snowboard (badly), and travel. Also I recently started learning karate.
What’s the coolest Web site I’ve discovered lately?
TED.com; it features interesting short talks on many different issues.
If I could live and work abroad for a year, where would I go?
Probably Japan; many of the customers my group works with are located there.
