I recieved my PhD from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at University of Maryland, College Park. My advisor was Ankur Srivastava. My research interests lie in thermal-electric-physical co-design of 3D ICs and 3D CPU architectural design space exploration and modeling. I have studied a wide range of 3D IC challenges such as thermally aware floorplanning and global placement, TSV signal integrity optimization, TSV reliability and self-repair, and design-time/run-time thermal management. My most recent work has investigated techniques to predict optimal CPU architectures subject to physical constraints using smoothing spline modeling. I received an MS and BS in Computer Engineering from the ECE department at SUNY Binghamton in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
