Research Interests
Briefly, my research interests lie generally in optimizing across hardware-software and integrated circuit design-manufacturing interfaces. Current focus of research in NanoCAD Lab is design-assisted technology scaling and underdesigned and opportunistic computing. I lead the IMPACT+ center and am part of the the NSF Expedition on Variability-Aware Software for Efficient Computing with Nanoscale Devices.

Professional Service

Books and Book Chapters
Research and funding opportunities available for graduate students. Students who like to cross disciplinary boundaries (VLSI fabrication, devices, circuits, systems, algorithms, statistics ) are especially welcome. Only Ph.D. students and M.S. students who pursue a thesis option will be considered.
Few M.S. project topics are also available without funding. Please contact me for details.

For M.S., do not send me an email till you have already applied and sent in your materials. I will not begin looking at M.S./Ph.D. applications before December. When you send me an email, include the following: (1) Your resume in PDF format; (2) Copies/latest drafts of your undergraduate/M.S. thesis in PDF; (3) a brief review + suggestions for improvement of one paper of your choice from my webpage. Absolutely dont contact me if you are not serious and enthusiastic about research. I will only fund incoming Ph.D. or M.S/Ph.D. applicants. If you are in the LA area, feel free to schedule an appointment with me.
