    I worked at University of Florida part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got to mess with a supercomputer and also got access to an Intel Xeon Phi. It was a great experience and it did help me learn a lot about their architecture and performance. I also got to work with the gem5 simulator and compare its performance with ODROID boards.

    Cons

    After 4 months of learning and exploring between May - July 2016, I was told that CHREC was moving to University of Pittsburgh and the project I was working on, was moving to Pittsburgh as well. My research came to a standstill and was to be transferred to someone completely new at the University of Pittsburgh.
