My principal research interests are computer architecture, VLSI design, and architectural support for operating systems. Alongside my Berkeley colleagues, Yunsup, Krste, and Dave, I designed RISC-V, an open, free instruction set architecture. Our goal is to make RISC-V the standard ISA for education and industrial implementation alike.
Prior to attending Cal, I received my B.S.E. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Duke in 2008.
