Nanoarch 2017 Best Paper Award

Our paper on “Approximate Vector Matrix Multiplication Implementations for Neuromorphic Applications using Memristive Crossbars” was presented with the best paper award at the 2017 IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Nanoscale Architectures (NANOARCH ’17)

W. Woods and C. Teuscher. Approximate Vector Matrix Multiplication Implementations for Neuromorphic Applications using Memristive Crossbars. Proceedings of the 2017 IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Nanoscale Architectures (NANOARCH ’17), 2017.


Girls Inc. Eureka!

Dr. Teuscher taught a 3-day Girls Inc. Eureka! cohort. Activities included Scratch, slime mold, cellular automata, and squishy circuits.

Eureka! is a five year Girls Inc. program that brings 8th – 12th grade girls, including many who will be first generation college applicants, onto local college and university campuses for an intensive STEM summer program.”

Jeff gets STARNet intership

tlab and former MCECS Undergraduate Research and Mentoring Program (URMP) student Jeff Udall was offered a highly competitive STARNet internship. He was also invited to present his work at the TECHCON 2017 conference in Austin, TX. STARnet is a collaborative network of stellar research centers finding paths around the fundamental physical limits threatening the long-term growth of the microelectronics industry.

Immediate Opening: Grad or Undergrad Student for Statistical Data Entry and Analysis

The research group of Dr. Christof Teuscher has an immediate opening for a paid position for a graduate and/or undergraduate student with knowledge in statistical data entry and analysis. The student will analyze a large amount of data from students that were involved in graduate and undergraduate research in Dr. Teuscher’s lab. Over the last 8 years, each of them completed weekly progress reports, kept task lists, completed a weekly self-evaluation, and received personal feedback once or twice a term. The goal of the research project is to determine metrics and predictors for success in undergraduate and graduate research.


  • Graduate or undergraduate student in psychology, sociology, systems science, or related disciplines.
  • Knowledge in statistical data analysis.
  • Knowledge of statistical software, such as R or SPSS.
  • Highly motivated, responsible, independent, with outstanding work ethics.
  • Interested in educational research.
  • Outstanding academic records.


  • Data entry (enter student evaluation forms into spreadsheet).
  • Analyze and code wiki project reports and weekly self-evaluations.
  • Anonymize the data.
  • Basic data analysis (using SPSS, R, or other software).
  • Advanced data analysis (using SPSS, R, or other software).
  • Create plots an visualizations.
  • Write and compile reports.
  • Collaborate with the PSU Survey Research Lab.
  • Participate in regular project meetings.


An hourly wage. An opportunity to work on a cool project. An opportunity to make an impact. An opportunity to gain experience.

WHAT teuscher.:Lab DOES:
