Research

I am interested in making parallel computing more accessible to programmers in different application fields so that more people can enjoy the performance gain from parallel computing. This involves programming languages, compilers, computer architectures and understanding of applications.

I work with Prof. Keshav Pingali in Intelligent Software Systems research group.

Projects

I would like to come up with programming models suitable for constrained optimization/constraint satisfaction algorithms. I am exploring such models by using Galois framework to parallelize graph algorithms from the following application fields.
