I am a fourth year PhD student in the Allen School (CSE) at the University of Washington, advised by Luis Ceze and Dan Grossman.

I am broadly interested in programming languages and compilers, particularly for the purpose of programming and designing specialized hardware. There is an increasing interest in special-purpose hardware due to major improvements in terms of performance-cost-energy compared to general purpose counterparts. However, most languages and compilers today are lagging behind, resulting extremely challenging to efficiently build robust specialized systems.
