Josh studied Math and Physics at Los Angeles Pierce Community College before transferring to Boston University in September 2014. He received his Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering in May 2017 and will receive his Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering in May 2019. Josh joined SVL following matriculation into the Masters program at BU to continue work on the Quiet Micro Boat project. The project eventually evolved into the Fast Autonomous Boats project, where Josh headed the design, integration, and testing of a homogeneous electronics system for fast unmanned surface vehicles that can detect the presence of drug submarines in low SNR environments. Josh has also worked with Boston University’s PeacLab to design and verify heterogeneous memory systems on new computer architectures. Josh’s professional interests broadly include designing, implementing, and testing embedded systems, exploring the performance and cost ramifications of emerging computer architectures, and software engineering for large-scale testing.

Outside of the lab, Josh enjoys hiking through the wildernesses of Massachusetts and his home state of California, playing strategy games like Civilization V, playing the violin in various orchestras, and cooking.
