What do you do at Intel?
I manage teams that are responsible for validation of Intel's desktop CPUs and chipsets. The products span various technologies, making logic and electrical validation a real challenge. We work with various other teams to validate the quality of our products. My primary job is to lead my teams to strike the right balance of features, schedules, resources and quality.
What is your favorite thing about working at Intel?
I love working on leading-edge technologies in processors, chipsets and new industry initiatives. There are talented and dedicated people across all disciplines of product development and it's great to work side by side with them. It's also very rewarding to see the products you work on ship into tens of millions of units and used in day-to-day life.
What is most challenging about your job?
Learning new technologies at a fast rate and balancing the risks to ensure we will have products shipping when the market window exists.
What is the best experience you've had while working at Intel?
My best experience has been working on new initiatives such as AGP on the Intel® 440LX and integrated graphics on the Intel® 810 product. We had a challenging task of bringing these new technologies to the market in a very short time. I was blessed with highly competent and dedicated teams that were also fun to work with. We pulled off some amazing feats and set standards that are still considered the ones to beat.
