My research

I lead the Parallel Computing Systems (PCS) group within the Systems and Network Engineering Lab, which performs research on the design, programming and run-time management of multi-core and multi-processor computer systems. The modeling, analysis and optimization of the extra-functional aspects of these systems, such as performance, power/energy consumption but also the degree of productivity to design and program these systems, play a pivotal role in our work. My personal research interests include:

o System-level design and optimization of multi-core embedded systems
o System-level modeling and simulation
o Design space exploration
o Performance and power analysis
o Hardware/software co-design
o Run-time resource management

o My research in a nutshell (a wordle of my paper titles)



o I have an opening for a PhD student in the area of Embedded Systems Design for Deep Learning Applications!

Prospective interns

o If you intend to apply for an internship in my group (especially for Indian IIT students), please read this first!
