I amwas a postdoc in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, under the supervision of Vijay Nagarajan and Boris Grot. I am a member of the Institute for Computing Systems Architecture.
My research interest focuses on computer architecture with special emphasis on
  • Memory systems and near-data processing in large-scale datacenters.
  • Processor architecture and microarchitecture.
  • Architectural support for approximate computing.
  • Operating system support for emerging memory technologies.
