2015 New Computer Science Faculty Members



SAMIRA KHAN
Assistant Professor

PhD, University of Texas, San Antonio
Post Doc, Carnegie Mellon University

Samira Khan

Samira is 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. Her 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.

Baishakhi Ray
Assistant Professor

PhD, University of Texas, Austin
Post Doc, University of California, Davis

Baishakhi Ray

Baishakhi is primarily interested in Software Engineering research with a focus on empirical studies, program analysis, and software evolution. Using techniques from diverse domains including machine learning, natural language processing, and rigorous statistical modeling, She analyzes large scale software repositories to understand on-going software engineering practices. This data-driven knowledge helps her build novel program analysis techniques and development tools to improve software quality and programmer productivity.
