Ph.D. Students of Prof. Brian L. Evans

Hugo Andrade received his BSECE and BSCS degrees (1987) and MSECE (1995) degrees from The University of Texas at Austin. From 1989 to 2017, he held full-time positions at National Instruments, where he was one of the co-inventors of the NI LabVIEW FPGA design flow and the founding manager of NI Berkeley Labs in Berkeley, CA. Since Summer 2017, he has been with Xilinx in San Jose, CA, as a Director of University Programs.

Research areas: System-level design automation, system reliability

Marcus DeYoung received his BS Computer Engineering and Telecommunications degree from the University of Pennsylvania and his MS degree in Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin in May 2007. He brings with him several years of full-time work experience in the design and real-time embedded implementation of signal and image processing systems. He enrolled at UT Austin in Fall 2005. In Fall 2005, he was a teaching assistant for Senior Design Projects course. In the Summers of 2006 and 2007, he returned to work at Zeta Associates in Fairfax, Virginia, on a full-time basis. From 2008 to 2015, he worked full-time at Zeta Associates. In 2015, he co-founded InPhase Research in Fairfax, Virginia. He is a part-time graduate ECE student in the Communications, Networks, and Systems (CommNetS) curriculum track.

Research areas: distributed signal processing; wireless sensor networks; blind source separation

Junmo Sung received BSEE degrees from Kyungpook National University (2008) and The University of Texas at Dallas (2010) through dual enrollment. During his summer 2010 internship, he conducted mean opinion score (MOS) tests for development of an objective image quality assessment method for 3DTV. He received his MSEE degree from The University of Texas at Dallas (2012). For his MS thesis, he analyzed quantization error generated by ADCs in multi-input multi-output (MIMO) radar imaging. From 2012 to 2015, he worked for National Unstruments in Seoul, South Korea, where he designed and implemented a real-time frequency division MIMO receiver on an FPGA and where he conducted research on 5G cellular communication systems. He has been a PhD student at UT Austin since fall 2015.

Research areas: smart grid communications
