Adam Arnesen received his M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2011 from Brigham Young University. He also received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering in 2009 also from Brigham Young University. While working on his masters degree, Adam worked at the Configurable Computing Lab at BYU as part of the NSF Center for High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (CHREC).

Adam’s professional interests include Intellectual Property (IP) core reuse in in reconfigurable computing (RC) platforms including FPGA, formal representation of interface behavior for RC cores, and interface synthesis for FPGA.   Adam currently works on the LabVIEW FPGA compiler team at National Instruments.
