Hello. I am a fourth year PhD candidate at the ECE department, University of Waterloo (UWaterloo). My advisor is Prof. Hiren Patel. I work in the general area of computer architecture with specific interests in real-time embedded systems architecture and high performance computer architecture.
I received my Masters in Applied Sciences (MASc) from UWaterloo in 2014. My MASc thesis was on accelerating SystemC simulations on multi-core CPUs and GPUs. I was an IBMer at the IBM Software Lab in Toronto working with the POWER optimization team from 2014-2015.
Between October'18 - December'18, I interned at AMD Research, Austin with the Compute on GPU (COG) group. I worked on designing novel tasking execution models for GPU compute applications.
