Research Interests

Broadly speaking, my research interests are in the field of computer architecture. More specifically, my current interests revolve around optimizing the architecture and microarchitecture of GPUs for GPGPU workloads. I am also interested in evaluating and re-architecting data parallel compute architectures in the context of scientific applications, and the use of specialized accelerators within heterogeneous architectures and systems.

Aside from technical research, I also have interests related to computer engineering education and curriculum. As the underlying technology of computing systems changes, how should that change the curriculum we provide and teach?

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).
