  • I am an Assistant Professor at University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. My research interests are in concurrency: programming, modeling, testing, and architecture. In particular, I am interested in exploring new programming models that enable development of correct and efficient applications on interesting (i.e. new or emerging) architectures. I see GPGPU programming as pragmatic avenue to explore different ideas in concurrency (and also programming GPUs is fun!). Given this, much of my work is framed using GPGPU. I am an invited individual contributer to the Khronos Group where we think about how to evolve official standards. Previously, I was a Post Doc at Princeton working in Margaret Martonosi’s group. I received my PhD from the Multicore Programming Group at Imperial College London supervised by Alastair Donaldson. Even earlier, I worked with Ganesh Gopalakrishnan and Zvonimir Rakamaric at University of Utah for my undergrad degree and MS. **I am currently looking for PhD students; please message me if the above description interests you!**
