I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Texas at Austin's Department of Computer Science. I entered the program in the fall of 2007. I am presently employed in the semiconductor industry and am on a leave of absence.
My advisor is Calvin Lin. I do research in computer architecture, and have worked in the following areas (all well developed and crowded with great prior work): branch prediction, prefetching, and workload sampling. I consider TAGE, AMPM, and SimPoint my baselines, respectively.
From Fall 2009 through Fall 2013, I was the instructor for CS 105: Perl.
