Looking for Students!

I will be joining Simon Fraser University in January 2011. I am currently looking for bright and motivated students to work with. If you are interested in working with me, take a look at my publications and drop me a note.


Thanks for visiting my website. I am a Ph.d candidate in Computer Science @ University of Rochester. I am part of the High Performance Synchronization and Cosyn groups led by Prof. Michael Scott and Prof. Sandhya Dwarkadas.

I am broadly interested in Systems architecture, with specific emphasis on the hardware and interaction of hardware with software. As a graduate student I have focused on hardware support for parallelism, synchronization and improving reliability of software.

Who am I ?

computer scientist, student of Sandhya Dwarkadas , C/C++ developer, LaTex lover, MACaddict half-decent tennis player, novice skydiver, expert map reader, porsche 944 driver , Madrasi
