I am pursuing a PhD in Computer Science at the Univeristy of California, Berkeley. I am a fifth year student in the Universal Parallel Computing Research Center (ParLab) and am being co-advised by Dave Patterson and Krste Asanovic. My research interests include manycore chip multiprocessor architectures, reconfigurable and software-managed memory hierarchies, and methodologies for auto-tuning, design space search and HW/SW optimization. I have used RAMP Gold and Chisel for this research. I am the winner of a 2010 NVIDIA Graduate Research Fellowship. I am also one of the founders of QICSE.
