I am a first-year graduate student pursing a PhD in Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am currently researching with Guri Sohi and the Multiscalar research team.
My research is in the area of computer architecture. Recently, I completed a project exploring how domain-specific accelerators are being used in today's systems and how we might make better use of flexible hardware platforms to build them. Currently, I am intruiged by the design and management of today's large-scale computing systems. This picture blows my mind. How do you architect a system when your building block is a shipping container full of machines?
EducationI received a Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis. I owe a great deal to the many excellent teachers who have taught me about computer architecture, research, and life. They are too many to name individually, but here is a list of a few to whom I am particularly grateful:
- Dr. William D. Richard
Undergraduate advisor and giver of much valuable and straightforward advice. Author of "Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Synthesizable VHDL But Were Afraid To Ask."
- Ed Richter, Professor of Practice
Taught me how to read binary. I once told him I thought there wasn't a solution to a problem; he told me (in front of the whole class) I hadn't thought long enough. Sick burn, great advice.
- Dr. Anne Bracy
Oversaw my first architecture research project and believed in me enough to hire an undergraduate TA for her graduate architecure course. Originator of my two favorite food-related computer architecture metaphors.
