Hi! I'm Andrew McCrabb, a Ph.D. student in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan. I am a Graduate Student Research Assistant alongside Dr. Valeria Bertacco, working in computer microarchitectures and accelerators.

WORK EXPERIENCE:

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 also worked as a TA for Auburn's Digital Electronics course with Dr. Guofu Niu, running labs, grading, and giving lectures.

EDUCATION EXPERIENCE:

I am an alumnus of Auburn University. I completed my undergraduate degree in 2016 in Electrical Engineering, with a focus in computer hardware. I am now a Ph.D. student in the Computer Science and Engineering department at the University of Michigan.

PERSONAL INTERESTS:

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 often go dancing (East and West Coast Swing, Blues, Fusion, and Zouk). I was a swing dance instructor in Auburn and have grown to love teaching. I have given beginner and intermediate group 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.
