About Me

I am a systems scientist in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at CMU, working in the SAFARI Research Group led by Prof. Onur Mutlu. I am a part of the Computer Architecture Lab at Carnegie Mellon (CALCM) and the Parallel Data Lab, and am a faculty affiliate at the Scott Institute for Energy Innovation.

In January 2021, I will be starting as an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign! I am looking for motivated graduate students who are interested in joining me at Illinois, so if that sounds like you, please contact me!

My research incorporates several aspects of computer architecture, with a significant focus on designing architecture-aware and systems-aware memory and storage. I am particularly interested in introducing interactions between different levels of the compute stack that allow the levels to cooperate with each other. Before moving to CMU, I was a graduate student in the M3 Architecture Group, which is part of the Computer Systems Laboratory at Cornell University. At Cornell, I designed efficient, high-performance memory systems for multicore architectures.

Research Interests
