I recieved my B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees, all in electrical and computer engineering, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1988, 1989 and 1994, respectively. I am currently an associate professor in the department. I have worked for Cray Research Inc. and Tandem Computers Inc, and have been a visiting scientist at the NASA Langley Research Center.

My research interests include fault-tolerance, verification simulation, high-performance VLSI circuits, radiation testing, design for dependability and software engineering. I am a member of Eta Kappa Nu, the IEEE Computer Society, the IEEE technical committee on Fault-Tolerant Computing and the IEEE technical committee on computer architecture.

I have also served as a program committee member on several international conferences and was a vice-chair for the IEEE International Performance and Dependability Symposium, IPDS-2000. I have won a number of awards including the National Science Foundation’s (NSF)career award in 1997.
