(or, at least a weak attempt at a home page. I did succumb some time ago to the insistence that I must have a home page. However, I do not seem to be able to find time to first learn and then do what needs to be done to make it an impressive homepage.)
Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering,
Ernest Cockrell, Jr. Centennial Chair in Engineering, and

Actually, I do have another picture, taken in a museum in Cyprus in June, 1995 by Greg Egan, professor at Monash University, ...and one at HPCA-12 in Austin, February, 2006.
Also, Haydn's interpretation of me at a UT Halloween, 2003 costume party.
My curriculum vita in .pdf is available here,

For graduate students thinking about doing research in computer architecture with me, you might want to read this.
I will be teaching the freshman course EE306 in Fall semester, 2019. We will be using the 3rd edition of Patt and Patel's "Introduction to Computing Systems: from bits and bytes to C, C++ and beyond." The book is in the final stages of production and I am told it will be in the bookstore shortly before the start of Fall semester, 2019. A lot of the textbook covers the same material as was in the 2nd edition, but there is enough new stuff and I think the explanations are a lot clearer so students are advised to avoid using the 2nd edition.
