Hi, I'm Georgia Shay.

I'm an Electrical Engineering and Computer Science student studying at MIT. I have experience with frontend and backend development, databases, data processing, and microcontrollers. In my free time, I've worked on various computer science and engineering-related projects both with groups and as an individual. My interests range from processors to algorithms, and I'm always excited to learn something new!

Relevant Coursework

  • AP Computer Science A | 2016-2017


June 2022 - August 2022

Cascodium - Andover, MA

Summer Intern

  • Added features and fixed bugs on an embedded system in C, and a corresponding GUI in C++
  • Redesigned a PCB for a measurement device to improve accuracy
  • Designed a regression model for prediction and explored different types of models for their accuracy
  • Researched algorithms for a signal processing task and simulated the effect of noise, frequency, and other parameters on their results to compare different methods
  • Developed an electric model for a physical process and evaluated its shortcomings

June 2021 - August 2021

Apple - Cupertino, CA

Integration Engineer Intern

  • Set up a clock domain crossing check flow and worked with designers to apply valid constraints to signals and waive errors that were non-issues.
  • Set up synthesis flow to run automatically and send the most important information to designers by email. Set up tracking for important metrics over time and ironed out issues with which parts of the design were being synthesized.

June 2020 - August 2020

Apple - Cupertino, CA

Design Verification Intern

  • Worked on implementing new features in a design verification testbench, using SystemVerilog, perl, and bash
  • Upgraded a set of test components to a new version with more advanced modeling. Ported customized features to the new version’s design framework.
  • Implemented multiple checkers to induce test failures on improper usages of register values.
  • Updated a reference model for a new project, and implemented a new feature to match the design under test (DUT). Provided random stimulus for this feature, checking for good coverage of all usage scenarios and exposing bugs in design.
  • Improved test-bench build flow by adding a pre-submission check to keep autogenerated files in sync.

September 2019 - May 2020

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) - Cambridge, MA

Lab Assistant for 6.004 Computation Structures

  • Help students with labs and concepts during lab hours
  • Check off students' labs during lab hours
  • Attend weekly meetings
  • Test lab assignments in advance

June 2019 - August 2019

Bridgestone Americas - Akron, OH

Summer Intern

  • Increased the speed of a custom serialization and deserialization process by five times using caching and removing unnecessary overhead
  • Increased the speed of a geometric intersection algorithm by five times using both mathematical optimization and array programming through python vectorization
  • Converted tire specifications to a new format and added new capabilities to handle checking tires against these specifications

June 2018 - August 2018

Bridgestone Americas - Akron, OH

Bridgestone Emerging Stem Leaders Program - Summer Intern

  • Created a tool to easily access engineering test data, and accompanying programs to periodically update or change the data
