About Me

I'm a second-year PhD student at the University of California, Berkeley, where I'm advised by Krste Asanović. Currently, I'm working on the Gemmini project. I've also contributed to the Chisel and FIRRTL hardware construction languages.

During my undergrad career, I worked with Vijay Janapa Reddi, investigating the compute requirements of autonomous aerial robots (drones). I helped to build MAVBench, an end-to-end benchmarking platform for drone applications.

My research interests are in computer architecture and heterogeneous computing.
