About Me

I received my Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from Northeastern University in May 2012. I am now a Graduate Student at the same institution in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. I am part of the Northeastern University Computer Architecture Research group pursuing a Ph.D in Computer Engineering. My research focuses on system reliability, more specifically on the analysis of the effects of soft errors on computer systems. I have also worked on architectural simulation of embedded processors and on the implementation of a MIPS emulator within the CPU-GPU simulation framework: Multi2Sim.


April 2016 Successfully defended my MS Thesis. Title: Architectural Vulnerability Factor Estimation through Fault Injections
March 2016 Presented our work from co-op at AMD Research (on Reliability Modeling for Highly Parallel Applications) at SELSE-12 in Austin, TX.
December 2015 Ended my co-op at AMD Research
June 2015 Our paper on Embedded Design education, detailing the structure of the Embedded Design class (for which I was a teaching assistant) was presented in the Workshop on Computer Architecture Education in Portland, OR.
May 2015 Started a co-op at AMD Research, working in Reliability and Program Vulnerability Factor modeling.
April 2015 Presented a Poster on Reliability and Approximate Computing at RISE (Research, Innovation and Scholarship Expo)
April 2015 Presented our work on ACE interference, at SELSE-11 in Austin, TX.
December 2014 Co-authored a paper on a Methodology to Calculate AVF for Multi-bit Transient Faults at MICRO (19% Acceptance Rate).
