Cristinel Ababei

I graduated! I am now at Magma Design Automation, Silicon Valley.
Here it is my PhD dissertation and my final exam ppt presentation.

I used to be a Ph.D. candidate at University of Minnesota. I received the M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Minnesota in 2002. I received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from University of Iasi, Romania, in 1996 and 1998, respectively. My research interests include CAD for layout and logic synthesis for robust high-performance low-power VLSI circuits, FPGA synthesis and reconfigurable systems.
During 1996-1997 I was an ERASMUS graduate student at University of Patras, Greece. I am a student member IEEE and ACM.
My advisor was prof. Kia Bazargan.
