Assoc Prof, Rutgers Computer Science

Starr Fellow, Princeton Neuroscience


I build computer systems. I'm currently designing systems to advance the brain sciences with my students, Guilherme Cox, Ján Veselý, Zi Yan, and Karthik Sriram. We work on embedded chips for brain-machine implants that directly interface with brain tissue, and compilation techniques to improve computational models of the brain in the field of cognitive neuroscience.

My group has influenced the way virtual memory is implemented on modern computer systems. We are the inventors of coalesced TLBs, which AMD first implemented in its Ryzen architecture. We have also proposed OS mechanisms for superpage management and have integrated them in the Linux 4.14 kernel series.

I am the recipient of the Chancellor's Award for Faculty Excellence in Research at Rutgers, the CV Starr Fellowship at Princeton Neuroscience, the National Science Foundation’s CAREER award, and research awards from Google and VMware. I obtained my PhD from Princeton, where I was awarded the Wu Prize for academic distinction, and my BEng from McGill, where I was awarded the British Association Medal for graduating at the top of my class.
