IEEE Micro Top Picks Award


Our work on the memristive Boltzmann machine has been selected as one of the 12 papers to receive an IEEE Micro Top Picks Award.

New Position


I joined the School of Computing at the University of Utah as an Assistant Professor.

HPCA'16 Distinguished Paper Award


Our paper on the Memristive Boltzmann Machine won the HPCA Distinguished Paper Award.

I am an assistant professor in the School of Computing at the University of Utah. My research interests are in the broad area of computer architecture, with an emphasis on energy-efficient computing for future computer systems.

I received a Samsung Best Paper Award in 2012, two IEEE Micro Top Picks Awards in 2013 and 2017, and a Distinguished Paper Award at HPCA 2016.

I am looking for highly motivated and hard working students who want to work with me. If you are a new CS/ECE student at the University of Utah, feel free to contact me for arranging an appointment; otherwise, email me your CV and apply to the SoC graduate program.
