Research Interests

My main interests are in the areas of computer systems and architectures. Very broadly, I like exploring hardware-software approaches to lower-level problems, be it reliability to voltage noise, power delivery design, datacenter power management or parallelism. I am currently pursuing a PhD degree in Computer Science at Harvard, as a part of the Architecture, Circuits and Compilers group. I am advised by Prof. David Brooks and Prof. Gu-Yeon Wei.

I maintain the XIOSim x86 microarchitectural simulator. If you are interested in detailed power and performance simulation of x86 cores, feel free to get the simulator on GitHub, or to read our ISLPED'12 paper that describes it.

In the past, I spent a considerable amount of my time programming mobile robots for the RFC Cambridge robotic soccer team. The team is a joint Harvard-MIT endeavor and participates annually in the international Robocup tournament. If you are interested in joining, shoot me an email.
