Brief Bio

I am currently an assistant Professor and the director of Scalable Computer Architecture & Emerging Technologies Laboratory (SCALE) in the Department of Computer Science at Kent State University, Kent, OH, USA. Prior to joining KSU, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Computer Science and Engineering division (CSE) at Louisiana State University (LSU) in Baton Rouge, LA, USA. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from Louisiana State University itself, under the supervision of Prof. Costas Busch. I received my dual degree European Master of Science in Computer Science from Faculty of Computer Science at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano (FUB), Italy and Institute of Computer Languages at the Vienna University of Technology, Austria, under the supervision of Prof. Enrico Franconi and Dr. Peter F. Patel-Schneider. I received my Bachelor in Engineering in Computer Engineering from Tribhuvan University, Nepal. I interned as a Summer Consultant at Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs in Summer 2008.
