Ph.D., Georgia Tech, 2013

    My research interests are in compilers and computer architecture, with an emphasis on performance, reliability, and security. I have developed program analysis and microarchitecture optimization techniques for soft error resilience, concurrency bug detection, and system security such as memory safety and Linux kernel permission check. Currently, I am working on energy-efficient intermittent computation and nonvolatile memory crash consistency. My research approach is to question current practices, that are considered as norms in the literature, and develop alternative systems. To achieve this, I often leverage compiler-architecture codesign and repurpose existing hardware features.

    Prior to joining Purdue, I was an Assistant Professor at Virginia Tech which I joined after completing my PhD under the superision of Prof. Santosh Pande at Georgia Tech in 2013. During the three summers between 2010 and 2012, I worked as a software engineering intern with the compiler optimization team at Google. From 2005 to 2008, I was a member of the research staff at ETRI (Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute). I am honored to receive an NSF CAREER Award in 2018.
