My research focuses on many aspects of computer architecture. I am
especially interested in studying how future technology trends
influence the design of microprocessors and memory systems. In recent
years, we have focused on designing memory systems that can cater to
the bandwidth, latency, power, cost, security, and reliability demands of
datacenter and big-data workloads. We are also exploring neuromorphic
Current projects include:
Past projects include:
- Neuromorphic Architectures : designing accelerators and biology-inspired architectures for cognitive or machine-learning applications.
- Memory Systems : optimizing DRAM/NVM chips, memory controllers, data placement, and security for big-data and datacenter workloads.
- Reliability : efficient mechanisms to support chipkill reliability in the memory system.
- Large cache design : methodologies to model large NUCA cache hierarchies, policies to organize data, and organizations in 3D.
- Interconnect design : leveraging different wires in a heterogeneous network for architectural innovation.
- Transactional memory : innovations for scalable hardware transactional memory.

Life outside work
My blood pressure as an Assistant Professor was 30 points lower than what
it was as a grad student. Must have something to do with a
and a wonderful sport.
