Hello, welcome to my home page. I am an associate professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology, Madras. My current research focus is on multicore architectures, specifically, issues related to memory system design and network-on-chip. I am a senior member of IEEE and ACM. My Erdos number is 3 (Gheorghe Paun -> Solomon Marcus -> Paul Erdos).
