From the point of ignition
My name is Gonzalo Carvajal Barrera. I am currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electronics Engineering, Universidad Tecnica Federico Santa Maria (UTFSM), Valparaiso, Chile.
I hold a B.Sc. and a Professional Degree in Electronics Engineering from Universidad de Concepcion, Chile. I also got my M. Sc. and Ph. D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the same institution.
I spent a significant part of my Ph.D. as a visiting researcher at the Real-time Embedded Software Group (ESG) at the University of Waterloo, Canada, working under the supervision of Prof. Sebastian Fischmeister. After defending my thesis, I became a Postdoctoral Fellow at the same group. Later, I was a Postdoctoral Associate at Carnegie Mellon University, USA. I also worked as an independent consultant and spent more time at University of Waterloo before joining the UTFSM.
My current research interests revolve around the broad scope of architectures, design, and analysis of computer systems, with a particular focus on reconfigurable logic and specialized infrastructure for embedded, real-time, and high-performance computing.
Home is not a place, but rather a state of mind
