Short Bio

Dylan Stow started at the University of California, Santa Barbara in Fall 2015 as a PhD student working with Professor Yuan Xie. Dylan received his M.S in Computer Architecture and VLSI/CAD from UCSB in 2017 and his B.S. degree from Harvey Mudd College in 2013. After graduating, he joined AMD as a physical circuit designer and contributed to the floating-point hardware in the recently-released Zen core.
His current research interests are (1) Architecture and design for emerging die-integration methodologies (e.g. 3D, 2.5D, FOWLP) with a focus on cost-driven design, IP reuse, and heterogeneous process integration, (2) hardware security, with an emphasis on hardware
techniques to prevent side-channel information leakage and IP piracy, and (3) efficient brain-inspired hardware that leverages emerging NVM and packaging technologies. Previously, he researched 3D machine learning accelerators for Qualcomm, floating point microarchitectures for Intel and Oracle Labs, and near-threshold CMOS cell design for yield-driven ultra-low power circuits.
