Electrical and Computer Engineering Assistant Professor Nam Sung Kim is designing low-power computing systems that, if implemented on a broad scale, could have significant environmental and economic benefits. He is developing algorithms to program machines to process computations more efficiently and reduce wasted energy during computations. His work includes trying to identify which circuit blocks can be turned off during certain functions to reduce the overall power consumption of the processor.
