Scalable Computing Group |
My research interests are in computer architecture, software systems, and their interactions.
My research group currently focuses on developing novel computer architecture and software system performance evaluation techniques, designing fast energy-efficient on-chip memory hierarchy, devising a large energy-efficient next-generation main memory subsystem, and discovering new techniques to enhance the capabilities of solid-state storage devices.
Our research has been generously supported by funding from the NSF, Samsung Electronics and the University of Pittsburgh.
I am also part of two initiatives at Pitt, sustainable computing and PCM@Pitt.
I am fortunate to work with many talented students at Pitt:
