What appeals to you about Electronics?
I was drawn to Electronics because it is such an innovative and quickly advancing field of engineering, with countless applications in a variety of different industries, such as transportation, energy management, communications and healthcare. When applying to study Electrical and Electronic Engineering, I really liked the idea of using my problem-solving skills to have a positive impact on current and future technological development and research.
Why did you want a scholarship with Dialog Semiconductor?
Dialog Semiconductor is at the forefront of PMIC technology, so I was very interested in the opportunity to work alongside such knowledgeable and passionate people. After my interview with Dialog, I was even more excited at the possibility of obtaining a scholarship with them because of how much they valued a strong work ethic and how helpful and encouraging everyone was.
What type of work have you been involved with during your placement?
In my first year at Dialog, I was part of the Layout Team and worked on optimizing a comparator cell and its corresponding top level block. This past summer, I was part of the Digital Design Team, where I worked on a PMIC FPGA emulation improvement project. These placements have been extremely valuable to me, as I have had the opportunity to learn about the design, fabrication and layout of PMICs, as well as about hardware emulation and simulation debugging. I have also had the opportunity to learn how to use software, such as Cadence and Xilinx, which are leading tools that I will definitely need in my future work.
What are your hobbies and interests?
I enjoy playing the piano, going to concerts, travelling and doing sports. I’m also the secretary of the Bristol Electrical and Electronic Engineering Society, so I help to plan several events throughout the year.
