Welcome to the ICE Laboratory Site @ GT
The lab has two current focus directions:
From these two areas of focus, we research
analog and digital integrated circuits and systems design,
CMOS device physics.
- Programmable and configurable,
analog and digital,
circuits, signal processing, algorithms, and systems
- Neuromorphic Engineering
Lead Professor: Dr. Jennifer Hasler
Topically Organized Publications
Recent Courses Taught
Potential Senior Design /
Graduate Special Problems

Some background on my former graduate students
Some of Dr. Hasler's personal thoughts (under construction)
"if you build it, you understand it.
And if you understand it, you can build it" -- Carver Mead
Programmability and Configurability
Physical and Neuromorphic Computation
Neuromorphic Systems: have
systems based on neuroscience,
to perform biological like tasks,
and thereby contribute to neuroscience understanding.
