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 architectures. Current projects include: Past projects include:


Innovations in the Memory System , Rajeev Balasubramonian, Synthesis Lectures on Computer Architecture , Morgan and Claypool Publishers, 2019.

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

CACTI 6.0 ( CACTI mirror site )


In Fall 2019, I am teaching a special topics class on Neuromorphic Architectures (CS 7960). In Spring 2020, I am teaching CS 3810 Computer Organization. I have also taught CS 7810 Advanced Computer Architecture, CS 6810 Computer Architecture, and the Architecture/VLSI Seminar (CS 7937). Courses taught in the past are listed here.




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.
