Biography
I received my PhD and MS from Electrical and Computer Engineering Department from The University of Arizona 
in August 2006 and May 2003 respectively. I completed my BE in Electronics and Communications in February 2000
from Manipal Institute of Technology, Mangalore University. I was a post-doctoral scholar at the High-Performance
Computing Architectures and Technologies (HPCAT) Laboratory at The University of Arizona from 2006 to 2007.
I was a consultant to Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) on Exascale and FastForward initiatives sponsored by
Department of Energy from 2013-2017.

Presently, I am the Chair of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science as well as Joseph K. Jachinowski
Professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Ohio University. I lead the Technologies
for Emerging Computer Architecture Laboratory (TEAL)
at Ohio University. I am Senior Member of the IEEE.

My research interests include computer architecture, optical interconnects, Network-on-Chips (NoCs) and emerging
technologies such as nanophotonics, 3D and wireless interconnects. I am the recipient of the
NSF CAREER Award
(2011), Presidential Research Scholar Award (2017),
Best Paper Award at the ICCD (2013) conference and my
papers have been nominated for Best Paper at IEEE High-Performance Computing, Data & Analytics (HiPC) in Dec 2021,
IEEE Design and Test in Europe (DATE) in March 2019, IEEE
Symposium on Network-on-Chips (NoCs) in May 2010 and
IEEE Asia & South Pacific Design Automation Conference (ASP-DAC) in January 2009. My 2004 Hot Interconnects paper
was selected as one of the Top Picks for IEEE MICRO magazine in 2005.

I serve as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Computers, IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing and I
have been a co-Guest Editor for IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics for Computing ('15-'16) and Journal of
Parallel and Distributed (JPDC) ('10-'11). I am the Vice-Chair for Architecture area for IPDPS-2020 and I have been
on the Program Committee of HPCA'19, DAC ('18,'19,'20, '21, '22), NAS'17, NoCs ('16, '17, '18, '19, '20, '21),
MPSoCs ('14, '15, '16, '17, '18, '19), ACM Nanocom '16, Hot Interconnects ('10,'15,'16,'17), external Program
Committee for MICRO'12 and HPCA'17.
