Biography

I am a lecturer (assistant professor) in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh. My work focuses on improving the efficiency of large-scale datacenters through improvements to server processor architectures, memory systems, and interconnects.

Previously, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the Parallel Systems Architecture Lab at EPFL. I did my PhD in Computer Science at The University of Texas at Austin. My dissertation focused on scalability and quality-of-service in on-chip networks of highly-integrated processor chips.
