I am a Phd student in the Dept. of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington, advised by Mark Oskin and Luis Ceze, and am a member of the Sampa group. My primary field of research is computer architecture.
As of January 2017, I am on leave from UW CSE as a Post-Grad Scholar at AMD Research, where I am investigating future GPU architectures for GPGPU applications.
I received my M.S. Computer Science and Engineering and B.S. Computer Engineering from the Dept. of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington in December 2015 and June 2014, respectively.
My (hopefully, but often not, up-to-date) CV can be found here.
Broadly speaking, my research interests are in the field of computer architecture. More specifically, I am interested in novel architectures, the hardware/software interface, and the interplay between applications and the underlying architecture, especially in the context of scientific applications. I am also interested in energy-efficient architectures, including specialized and reconfigurable hardware.
My past research has spanned a variety of topics, including data processing for novel DNA sequencing technology, modeling approximate computing techniques (see REACT), and the evaluation and comparison of a neural network accelerator on reconfigurable hardware using high level synthesis (see SNNAP).
Next time you see me, ask me about the following: cooking, soccer (Go Sounders!), skiing/snowboarding, Seattle, or dual-wielding gyros (the delicious sandwiches).
