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.

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
