Dr. Cory Merkel
I am a computer engineer with expertise in the area of brain-inspired computing and neuromorphic systems. I received my BS/MS (2011) and Ph.D. (2015) degrees in computer engineering and microsystems engineering from RIT. My dissertation research focused on designing mixed-signal circuits using memristive devices for energy-efficient neuromorphic computing. From 2016-2018, I was a reserach electronics engineer at the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) in Rome, NY. My primary reseach focus at AFRL was novel hardware for size, weight, and power (SWaP)-efficient computing and on-sensor intelligence. I have been an assistant professor in the department of computer engineering at RIT since 2018. My current research interests include energy-efficient artificial intelligence hardware, emerging nanodevices for computing, and adversarial machine learning.
