Note: I am on faculty development leave (AKA Sabbatical) at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland during the 2017-2018 academic year.  As such if you’d like to contact me, please send email to me (  I will respond as soon as possible (modulus the difference in time zones and etc.). I will return to Texas A&M Fall 2018.

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University where I am a member of the Computer Engineering and Systems group.

I lead the CAMSIN research group, where our computer architecture research focuses on power, reliability and performance of the future chip-multiprocessor (CMP) and multiprocessor system-on-chip (MPSoC) designs.

I am a co-PI in the Center for Research in Intelligent Storage at Texas A&M University (CRIS-TAMU), an NSF-funded, Industry/University Cooperative Research (I/UCRC) Program.  This is an inter-disciplinary, multi-university, center that brings together researchers under an umbrella to work on cutting-edge research on nonvolatile memories (NVMs), SSDs, memory-storage hierarchies, systems software for NVM, and coding for new memories.

I received my PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, December 2008.  On the TRIPS prototype processor project, I designed, implemented and verified the second level memory system, on-chip network and chip-to-chip network.

I am the PC chair for the 2nd Cache Replacement Competition, take a look and submit your best ideas!
