Bio
His current research focuses on the architecture of general-purpose graphics processor units (GPUs) and energy efficient computing including most recently, accelerators for machine learning. Along with students in his research group he developed the widely used GPGPU-Sim simulator. Three of his papers have been selected as "Top Picks" by IEEE Micro Magazine for their novelty and potential long term impact, a forth was selected as a "Top Picks" honorable mention. One of his papers was also selected as a "Research Highlight" in Communications of the ACM magazine. He is in the MICRO Hall of Fame and Program Co-Chair for MICRO 2019. He is a member of the NSERC Discovery Grant Evaluation Group for 2018 to 2020. He served as an Associate Editor for IEEE Computer Architecture Letters from 2012-2015 and the International Journal of High Performance Computing Applications from 2012-2016, was Program Chair for ISPASS 2013, General Chair for ISPASS 2014, and has served on numerous program committees. He delivered a keynote address at SAMOS 2014. He was a Visiting Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at Stanford University during 2012-2013. He was awarded an NVIDIA Academic Partnership Award in 2010, a NSERC Discovery Accelerator for 2016-2019 and a 2016 Google Faculty Research Award (the first at UBC since 2012). He is a member of the recently funded COHESA NSERC Strategic Network studying the interactions of machine learning and hardware design. He is also a member of CAIDA: UBC ICICS Centre for Artificial Intelligence Decision-making and Action and Quantum BC. He has served as an expert in patent litigation related to GPUs and is presently consulting part-time with Huawei.
