Student and Researcher in Auburn, Alabama
Hi! I'm Andrew McCrabb, a Teaching Assistant at Auburn University. I graduated Magna Cum Lauda in Electrical and Computer Engineering in December 2016.
I have completed two co-op semesters at Toyota's plant in Georgetown, KY. I have served as an undergraduate researcher, designing and testing digital chips in the Auburn Nanotech Group with Dr. Michael Hamilton. I now work as a TA for Auburn's Digital Electronics course, running lab sessions, grading assessments and reports, and occasionally giving lectures.
GRADUATE SCHOOL INTERESTS:
I am pleased to announce I have accepted my offer from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor! I'm most interested in working on digital hardware algorithms for computing systems. I have geared my undergraduate courses towards developing skills in VHDL, Verilog, C, and parallel programming libraries like OpenMP, MPI, and CUDA. I will begin working toward my Ph.D. in the Fall 2017 semester.
I firmly believe that I am most productive when I strike a good balance between my time working, studying, and relaxing.
In my free time, I am a swing dance instructor here at Auburn. I have grown to love teaching and have given beginner and intermediate lessons since 2014. I have built two personal desktops for myself and have helped many friends plan and build their own computers. I am also an amateur photographer and long-distance runner.
