I am a professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, UC-Davis. I lead our team at the Laboratory for Embedded and Programmable Systems (LEPS), where we work on platforms, design and programming methodologies for embedded computing systems. I received my PhD in Computer Science from UCLA in 2004.

I am interested in design methodologies for embedded and cyber-physical systems (CPS), which utilize computing to monitor, service and control various application-specific processes, including those in the physical world. My work deals with modeling, analysis, synthesis and optimization of embedded software, programmable execution platforms (e.g., processors, GPUs and FPGAs) and tools for automating the design process. The area offers an interesting blend of theory and practice: real-world applications give rise to research problems, for which solutions are developed using a combination of analytical and experimental techniques.

Currently, my students and I are working on efficient execution of trained deep convolutional neural networks (an important technique in machine learning), and embedded systems for selected health applications, such as lung function evaluation and transabdominal fetal oximetry.
