I am an Associate Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department at the University of Texas at Austin. My research interests are in the area of embedded systems, specifically with a focus on electronic system-level design (ESL/SLD), system modeling, design languages and methodologies, and embedded hardware and software synthesis.

I received a Ph.D. degree in Information and Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine (UCI) in 2004. Prior to joining UT in 2008, I was an Assistant Researcher in the Center for Embedded Computer Systems (CECS) at UC Irvine, leading a research group to develop electronic system-level (ESL) design automation tools. Commercial derivatives of such tools are in use at the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), NEC Toshiba Space Systems and others. I am co-author on 3 books and more than 70 conference and journal publications. Our paper on OS modeling was reprinted as one of the most influential contributions in 10 years at DATE. I have presented in several conference and industrial tutorials, and I serve as an Associated Editor for the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computer Systems (TECS), the ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems (TODAES), as well as a Topic/Track Chair or member of the program committee for major international conferences such as DAC, DATE, CODES+ISSS and ICCAD.

My research is made possible through the support of NSF, SRC, AMD, Intel, National Instruments, Qualcomm, Samsung, and Xilinx.
