I am on the academic job market starting Fall 2021. Please reach out to me if you are hiring!
I am a 5th year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Computer Science at UC Santa Barbara and a research affiliate at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. My interests are broadly in the field of computer architecture but include anything that can help us build innovative computing systems.
In particular, my research is driven by the desire to understand the nature of computation better and shape machines that most effectively address societal needs. Currently, I am primarily working on the exploration of emerging computing paradigms and technologies for energy-efficient processing -- ranging from tiny embedded systems to exotic supercomputers. Moreover, I am actively involved in ArchLab's efforts to develop high-productivity methodologies, languages, and tools for the modeling, design, and evaluation of future semiconductor- and superconductor-based computer platforms. For latest news, please take a look at my publications page and scholar profile.
In addition to my science and engineering passions, I am intrigued by the challenge of turning visionary ideas into real-world solutions. To demystify entrepreneurship and sharpen my business skills, I am attending UCSB's Technology Management Program.
Superconductor electronics are (literally) cool and have been around for a while. However, they have only recently gotten on computer architects' radar. To accelerate innovation at the intersection of these two fields, I built the JJUNCTION. If you want to share a comment, suggestion, or new material, drop me a line!
