Asha T. Chen-Phang

Personal Information:

I am a second year student in the College of Engineering, at Northeastern University pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering. I attended the CREC Academy of Aerospace and Engineering high school located in Hartford, Connecticut.

I am a member of the Black Engineering Student Society (BESS), the Northeastern University Chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), and serve as the current Technical Outreach an Community Help (TORCH) Chair. I also work part-time for the University within the College of Engineering Undergraduate Student Services as an Office Assistant.


Summer Research:

I am currently participating in a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program hosted at the University of Michigan School of Information. I am working under Assistant Professor Tawanna Dillahunt on a project involving the testing, implementation and evaluation of a web-based application designed to support individuals of low socioecononic status in seeking employment.

University Research:

Throught the spring of 2015, I worked with the Northeastern University Computer Architecture Research (NUCAR) group on a research project being performed by graduate student Fritz Previlon, who is developing GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) simulation that evaluates the reliability of the GPU hardware by injecting faults into register files (REG), local memory (MEM), and active mask stack (AMS). This statistically based fault injection will be used to assess the vulnerability of the GPU, while comparing that to the values associated with CPU architechture.
