About Me

I am a PhD student in the Electrical Engineering Department at Stanford University, where I work with Kunle Olukotun in the Pervasive Parallelism Laboratory.

My research interests are in computer architecture and computer systems. Specifically, I am interested in parallel and heterogeneous architectures and application-specific accelerators, and how we can design and program them to continue improving application performance and efficiency in the face of limits to frequency and power scaling. For my PhD research, I study hardware and software optimizations for large-scale, parallel graph analysis, focusing on the memory hierarchy.

When I am not working on my research, I enjoy playing tennis, hiking, cycling, and photography. I also play the flute, and formerly played in the Stanford Philharmonia and the Stanford Symphony Orchestra.

I hold a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University (2011) and a Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Cornell University (2009).
