I am a PhD student in College of computing advised by Prof Karsten Schwan and Dr. Ada Gavrilovska. I am a member of CERCS research group. I am interested in Operating Systems and specifically heterogeneous memory structures for operating systems. My current focus of work is about studying the impact of next generation non-volatile memories like PCM, Memristor to improve application performance.
