I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at TXST. I lead the Compilers Research Lab (CRL) where we are working on a number of projects in the broad area of high-performance computing with an emphasis on developing intelligent compiler techniques for improving programmer productivity, application performance and energy efficiency. My research has received funding from the National Science Foundation (including a CAREER award in 2013), Department of Energy, Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Semiconductor Research Consortium (SRC), AMD, NVIDIA, Intel and IBM (including a Faculty Award in 2008).

From 2016-2019, I was a Visiting Scholar at AMD Research in Austin, where I was member of the PathForward team in the Exascale Computing Project. In 2015, I was a Visiting Professor at University of Edinburgh, School of Informatics working under the guidance of Mike O' Boyle. I obtained my PhD from Rice University. My dissertation was supervised by Ken Kennedy and John Mellor-Crummey
