I am a researcher in the Computer Architecture Group at Microsoft Research (MSR). I am also an affiliate associate professor at the Departement of Computer Science and Engineering at University of Washington.
My research interests include computer architecture, more specifically chip-multiprocessor architectures, cache coherence protocols, virtualization and partitioning of multiprocessors, dynamic compilation and optimization and system software for new architectures.
