I am a first-year PhD student working with Simone Campanoni in the Arcana Lab at Northwestern University. My current research interests are in exploring new middle-end abstractions for parallel programs, specifically to enable new data layout/transfer optimizations. Previously, I’ve interned at NVIDIA and Argonne National Laboratory working on GPU compilers.


  • Compiler Optimizations for Parallel Programs
  • Programming Models for HPC
