Research Areas

My research interests lie in the areas of programming languages, compilers and systems. Specifically, I am interested in various language features, compiler techniques and run-time system support that will be necessary to unlock the potential of emerging, complex computation platforms such as multicore processors, heterogeneous architectures, sensor networks and distributed systems.

I graduated in 2002 with a B.S. in both Computer Science and Computer Engineering from North Carolina State University. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Cornell University. My advisor was Keshav Pingali. While pursuing my Ph.D., I was supported by a Department of Energy High Performance Computer Science (HPCS) Fellowship. After receiving my Ph.D., I joined the Institute for Computational Sciences and Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin as a postdoc, where I worked with the Intelligent Software Systems (ISS) group. Since the fall of 2009, I have been in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Purdue University.
