Research Experience

Northwestern University

  • Used a compiler and runtime to build a dynamic, allocation level, memory mapping of a running program
  • Used runtime and compiler to perform memory management functions provided by virtual memory like movement and protection
  • Tested viability of using CARAT to act as a replacement of virtual memory to enable the removal of the TLB and paging.

Northwestern University

  • Looked at alternative implementations to perform address translations in order to replace TLB
  • Investigated the feasbility of replacing TLBs with a perfect hash function generated by GPerf as well as minimal perfect hashing
  • Compared time and space complexity of new approach to traditional approach

Northwestern University

Building Blocks for Explicit Memory Management on Deep Memory Architectures

Argonne National Laboratory

  • Adding abstractions to complex memory systems to enable programmers to have explicit control over managing memory during execution
  • Testing the library on various benchmarks to compare performance improvement and simplicity of use over traditional, automated, approaches
  • Link to the Project
  • Creating report on the findings named "Building Blocks for Explicit Memory Management on Deep Memory Architectures"
