I am a Ph.D student in the MASC Research Lab at the University of California, Santa Cruz(UCSC). My research focuses on computer architecture and CPU design. I am currently exploring complete design flow from front-end design and synthesis to back-end implementation.
I am the lead architect on the SCOORE Research project. SCOORE is an Out-Of-Order, SuperScalar, Sparc V8 processor under development by our lab. It is a dual target FPGA/ASIC CPU, it is our belief that this project will serve as an infrastructure to research dealing with variability, multi-core designs, and thread level speculation, amongst many other architecture related areas.
