I am a Postdoc at Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA mentored by David Brooks and Gu-Yeon Wei. I work in the Architecture, Circuits, and Compilers Group. My research interests include embedded non-volatile memories, thermal hotspots, and ion-trap quantum computers.

Prior to joining Harvard, I completed the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering at Tufts University, Medford, MA, USA in January 2022. The title of my dissertation is Evaluation of Embedded Non-Volatile Memories for Modern Computing Systems. It is available here.

My curriculum vitae is available here.
