I am a second-year PhD student working with Nikos Hardavellas in Paragon at Northwestern University. Currently, I’m working on exploring new memory models as well as hardware and software support for them. Previously, I’ve interned at NVIDIA and Argonne National Laboratory working on GPU compilers and runtimes.

I also have passing interests in synthetic biology, and have been both a member and a team lead of Mathematics and Modelling Subteam in the University of Waterloo’s iGEM Teams in 2018, 2019 during my undergraduate degree.
