Ganghee Jang

After getting a bachelorís degree in 2003 from Korea University, Ganghee obtained a full-time position from KT (Korean Telecom). While experiencing that many performance issues drove systems to malfunction, especially due to processor boards, he became interested in system architecture. However, KTís promising job interrupted this new curiosity.  He was granted a two years leave of absence to pursue a Mastersí degree at the University of Florida.  There, he spent two years studying digital communication and signals and systems, and finally decided not to return to KT, but instead to find a chance to study computer systems.  His new challenge starts here at UCI where he is currently pursuing a PhD degree in the computer architecture field, and where he is finding himself motivated to explore the parallel architecture design space.
