About Me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at UC Santa Barbara. My research focuses on the overlap between Computer Architecture, Programming Languages, and Operating Systems.

I'm looking for students! Send me an email if you think we have mutual interests. I'm also interested in externally advising students working on open-source hardware projects.
