I received my PHD in Computer Science from the Florida State University
in 2007 and am currently a Professor in the EECS department
at the University of Kansas.
My research interests are in the areas of compilers, computer
architecture, and runtime systems (virtual machines).
In particular, we focus on building system tools to investigate and
solve a variety of interesting problems to enable more efficient and
secure program execution on modern multi-core machines and embedded
As a student I received the IBM Ph.D. fellowship. I was awarded the NSF's CAREER award in 2010, and KU EECS students awarded me with the Harry Tally Excellence in Teaching Award in 2012 and 2017. I invite you to visit our CARS research group page to find an overview of our research.
