research interests
My research interests span CS, CE and a little bit EE. I am working on projects that improves the productivity of
hardware development using Python and meta-tracing JIT. I am a strong advocate of open-source hardware and
open-source EDA. I am also a maniac of parallel architecture/abstraction/application. I seek for opportunities to
accelerate emerging application domains and key algorithms with detailed VLSI timing/area/energy results.
