Computer Architecture at UCSB:

At UCSB, I co-direct the CS Computer Architecture Lab (ArchLab), where my students and I work on all manner of computer architecture problems, from circuits to systems to the applications that run on them. Computer architecture is a great field in that you can use theory, algorithms, and VLSI all together to attack interesting problems. My primary interest is in techniques that allow for the continuous streaming analysis of complex systems. Whether you are trying to find run-time phases, discover suspicious content in the network, handle wireless multipath interference, or uncover bugs in a program -- modern programmable processors are ill equipped to handle these irregular throughput driven applications. The ArchLab website, and my publications page both have more information if you are interested.

Selected Recent Publications:

This is a sampling of some my recent publications that we are actively doing research on now. More details, and PDF of most papers, can be found on my Full Publication List.

Some Awards:

I have been lucky enough to work with some amazing people: graduate students, teaching assistants, and collaborators. Below are some of the awards we have won in recent years
