I am an incoming professor at Georgia Tech in the School of Computational Science and Engineering starting in January 2024. Until then, I am the Grace Hopper Postdoctoral Fellow in Computing Sciences at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where I am lucky to be hosted by Dr. Aydin Buluc. Before that, I graduated with my Ph.D. in Computer Science from MIT, where I was fortunate to be advised by Prof. Charles E. Leiserson. My thesis was on “The Locality-First Strategy for Developing Efficient Multicore Algorithms.”

Information for prospective students

I am looking for motivated Ph.D. students starting in Fall 2024! If you are interested in parallel and high-performance computing, there are two paths to working with me:

  • If you are not yet a Ph.D. student at GT, please apply to the CSE Ph.D. program and place my name in the faculty preference list.
  • If you are currently a Ph.D. student at GT, please reach out and include why you are interested in our group, your CV, grad report, a code sample (preferably C/C++), and a writing sample.

Research interests

  • Parallel and high-performance computing
  • Cache-friendly algorithms and data structures
  • Software performance engineering
