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. We are also exploring neuromorphic architectures. Current and past projects are listed below . Current projects include:

Past projects include:

As a graduate student, I delved into problems involving memory hierarchy bottlenecks ( MICRO'00 ), pre-execution threads ( ISCA'01 ), register file complexity ( MICRO'01 ), and scalability of clustered microprocessors ( ISCA'03 ). Ph.D. Thesis.
