I am an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University, where I am a member of the Computer Systems Laboratory.
I received a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with my work on a single-chip secure processor. Following the graduate school, I spent a year at Verayo Inc., where I led the development of unclonable RFIDs and secure embedded processors. I joined the faculty of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell in 2007.
My research has been supported by grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the Army Research Office (ARO), the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) as well as gifts from SRC, Intel, Xilinx, and SUN (now Oracle). The research grants include an NSF CAREER award, the AFOSR Young Faculty Program (YIP) award, and the ARO Young Investigator Program (YIP) award.
My research interests include computer systems in general with particular focus on computer architecture. I am interested in combining architectural techniques with low-level software to enhance various aspects of computing systems such as performance, energy-efficiency, and security.
