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, and reliability demands of datacenter and big-data workloads. Current projects include: Past projects include:


Multi-Core Cache Hierarchies , Rajeev Balasubramonian, Norman P. Jouppi, Naveen Muralimanohar, Synthesis Lectures in Computer Architecture , Morgan and Claypool Publishers, 2011.

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 wonderful wife and a wonderful sport. And now, the newest distractions: Shurik and Anushka.
