šŸ‘· This website is still under construction, but should be ready by the end of November! šŸ‘·

Iā€™m a PhD Candidate at Georgia Tech and an intern at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM. At Sandia, I work on the Structural Simulation Toolkit, a collection of architectural simulation components and interfaces. I also work on high-level performance modeling on the AGILE project.

My thesis topic is Multifidelity Computer Architecture Simulation. This work started with my paper Online model swapping for computer architecture simulation.

I am also the creator of the Spatter memory benchmark. This tool lets users explore the performance of a large class of gather/scatter-based memory access patterns on CPUs and GPUs. Spatter will be used during the design of ATS-5, the successor to Crossroads.
