Current Students

Daniyah Alaswad - Ph.D. Electrical and Computer Engineering

Currently working on my Ph.D.’s degree in Electrical and Computer engineering program at Oakland University. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in electrical and computer engineering in April 2018. In my graduate work, I have gained experience in programming and development and embedded system assignments. In addition, I have a strong knowledge of digital logic design on FPGAs and electrical circuits.

Former Students

Jing Wu - M.Sc. Electrical and Computer Engineering (Resume)

I graduated with a Master's in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Oakland University. I also have a bachelor's degree in Optical Information Science and Technology from Beijing Information Science and Technology University. In the last year of undergraduate, because of my good academic performance, I came to OU as an exchange student to study in Electrical and Computer Engineering. The, I pursued my Master's. I am skilled in embedded system design and digital logic with FPGAs.

Currently working at: Aptiv. Position: System Engineer


Oluwakemi Adabonyan - M.Sc. Embedded Systems (Resume)

I graduated with a Master's in Embedded Systems at Oakland University, having completed my Bachelor's degree in Electrical Electronics Engineering from Bells University of Technology, Ota, in Nigeria. Through course work and projects at Oakland, I have acquired knowledge and developed passion for Embedded Computing, exploiting Microprocessors, FPGAs and GPUs. This motivated me to pursue a masters thesis centered on utilizing FPGA architecture and reconfigurable computing for Edge Detection. I am also expanding my expertise in embedded software programming through an internship that exposes me to automotive software development and product processes.

Andres Jacoby Krateil - M.Sc. Embedded Systems (Resume)

I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Electronic Engineering by Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (PUCP) in 2014. I also graduated with a Master's in Embedded Systems at Oakland University. I worked at OU's Reconfigurable Computing Research Laboratory as a Research Assistant in the project: “Development of a Crank-Angle-Resolved Engine Cylinder Pressure Model for HIL”. I had previously worked in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) at the Rural Telecommunication Research Group (GTR-PUCP), as well as a teaching ssistant in various digital related courses. I have a extensive knowledge on microprocessor-based embedded systems, hardware-based embedded systems, Dynamic Partial Reconfiguration (DPR), WSN and Linux. My research interests include hardware acceleration, reconfigurable computing, Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL), signal processing, parallel processing, FPGAs and embedded systems applications in the automobile industry.
