Research Interests:
Computer Architecture, Processor Microarchitecture, Memory Consistency, Cache Coherence, Memory Systems, Mobile Computing, Parallel Algorithms

Currently I am a post-doc at AMD Research. In August 2018, I will be joining the Computer Science Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison as an Assistant Professor! I am actively recruiting students -- please contact me if you are interested in working with me!

My research focuses on building efficient memory hierarchies for tightly coupled heterogeneous systems, especially for emerging applications like graph analytics applications and applications with fine-grained synchronization. My work improves performance and energy efficiency for these applications by designing more efficient coherence protocols, consistency models, and memory organizations. Two of my papers on this topic were recognized as IEEE Micro Top Picks Honorable Mentions. I have also received several fellowships and awards for my work, including a Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship, two Mavis Future Faculty Fellowships, a Feng Chen Memorial Award, and W.J. Poppelbaum Award, and Saburo Muroga Fellowship. I was also selected to attend and present a poster on this work at the 2016 Heidelberg Laureate Forum.
