Summer Research Intern: Designed and implemented Rockit, a software system that identifies the graphical constraints in a scene and allows the user to quickly and easily choose and apply the desired constraints. Used both graphical and written rules to choose the most likely constraints. Wrote a technical report and published a conference paper describing the system.
6/90-8/90 GO CORPORATION, Foster City, CA
Software Engineering Intern: Designed and implemented bug entry data base for the company's products. Design included user interface to and communications with data base residing across a network, as well as extension of commercial data base product to support additional features.
6/89-8/89 ARDENT COMPUTER, Sunnyvale, CA
Member of Technical Staff: Designed and developed ECAD library manager to maintain consistency among different libraries and projects. Programmed CAD utilities for logic designers. Ran test simulations for verification of ASIC designs before release to semiconductor houses.
1/88-8/88 SOFTWARE PUBLISHING CORPORATION, Mountain View, CA
Software Engineering Intern: Designed and implemented PFS: Professional File 2.0 window manager, which facilitated custom application development through dynamic creation and disposal of menus, pulldowns, and dialogs on various displays. Created utility for use by graphics designer to finalize details of user interfaces. Improved performance of database routines. Implemented routines to import and export data from Lotus 1-2-3. Wrote PostScript printer driver.
