I am mainly interested in Computer Architecture and Computer systems, especially in building new systems by rethinking the traditional assumptions in abstraction and separation of responsibilities in different system layers and redesigning interfaces with new interaction and collaboration to solve systems/architecture research problems. My current research focuses on designing systems with scalable and high capacity main memory by rethinking two interfaces: (i) circuits and architecture, and (ii) architecture and operating system. My prior work focuses on improving performance, efficiency, and reliability of cache hierarchy. Please find a short summary of my research here.
