Philip Paré

Philip Paré was born in Boston, MA and raised in Cambridge, MA. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus-Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Mexico City. In August 2011, he married his wonderful wife and best friend, Annette. In August 2012, Philip graduated with honors with a degree in Mathematics and a minor in music. In Summer 2012, he interned at IM Flash Technologies, where he developed a selection methodology for LQG run-to-run observer cost functions that used a gradient-ascent-type algorithm to find Q and R weighting matrices to improve the production quality delivered by the run-to-run LQG control system. This methodology was implemented on an actual full-scale production dry etch process, and improved it by 15.68%.

In August 2014, he graduated with a Master’s degree in Computer Science. After graduating, Philip went to University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to pursue a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering researching clustering and control of dynamic systems.
