RESEARCH

I am advised by Prof. Rajeev Balasubramonian at Utah, and by Dr. Norm Jouppi and Dr. Naveen Muralimanohar at HP Labs. My research interests lie primarily in computer engineering and hardware systems. As part of my dissertation research, I have studied various aspects of main memory system architecture. Specifically, I have worked on the design of energy-efficient DRAM microarchitectures, high-bandwidth silicon-photonic memory channels, streamlined processor-memory communication protocols, and efficient fault-tolerance mechanisms. Earlier in my graduate career, I worked on scalable on-chip interconnects, both at the inter-core level, and the intra-bank level inside large caches. For more details, please see my publications.
