I am a Professor of Computer Science at Williams College. I received my PhD from the Computer Science Department at Stanford University and my BS in Computer Science from Duke University.


My research explores ways to improve the performance and power of parallel computer architectures, including heterogeneous architectures. This work includes proposing software and hardware optimizations as well as developing tools that help programmers understand when specific optimizations or hardware are applicable. My research also explores the correctness of Internet of Things platforms and their applications, with respect to data consistency. Information about some of these topics can be found by looking at my publications.
