I am a professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the Ohio State University. My research interests are in software engineering, programming languages, and compilers. In particular, I am interested in static and dynamic program analysis; software for Android devices; privacy-preserving software analysis; software understanding and testing; high-performance computing. Additional details are available at the PRESTO research group page and in my vita.

I am currently looking for a Ph.D. student with experience in compilers and high-performance computing, to work on compiler topics related to efficient, scalable, and performance-portable tensor applications (NSF grant CCF-2216903).
