Second year ECE grad student Daniel S. McFarlin has received two external fellowships: a National Defense Science and Engineering (NDSEG) Graduate Fellowship and a Science, Mathematics and Research for Transformation (SMART) Graduate Fellowship. In addition, McFarlin's first year of study has been funded by a fellowship from the National Physical Science Consortium (NPSC).
McFarlin is a member of the SPIRAL group and is advised by Markus Püschel. He is currently conducting research into automated hardware/software co-design for signal transforms and FPGAs as part of a multi-university effort. Also, he is heavily involved in a research effort to enable automatic code generation for Intel's forthcoming Larrabee architecture.
