Hi! My name is Cyril Saade, and I am a senior pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering at Boston University. My interest in Computer Science goes far beyond coding; I aspire to invent and create technologies that have the power to make our everyday lives easier.
I am currently working at the Performance and Energy Aware Computing Lab, under the supervision of Professor Coskun. My current research focuses on the development of an Open Source Thermal Simulator: HotSpot. My previous project consisted of understanding the thermal and performance of 3D DRAM stacked system, in which I had the opportunity to work on the famous AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Graphical Processing Unit. If you're a gamer, you most probably hate me at this point.
I was born and raised in Paris, France. At the age of 13, I moved to Beirut, Lebanon to continue my High School education where I earned my French Baccalaureate, to later settle in the United States for my undergraduate studies. When I am seperated from my computer, you might see me rocking down the slopes with the one and only former 1988 Lebanese Ski Champion (AKA my mother), or just sipping on a locally brewed beer.
P.S.: I strongly recommend visiting the Heineken Brewery in Amsterdam if you are looking to enjoy the best Heineken in the world (and most probably, the best beer of your life).
