I'm currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Edinburgh, in the School of Informatics, under the supervision of Dr. Vijayanand Nagarajan. I am a member of the Institute for Computing Systems Architecture, and part of the Compiler and Architecture Design Group.

I was recently awarded an Intel PhD Fellowship. See awards for more details. A link to my old website
