:wave: Hello! I am a third-year Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science, advised by Simone Campanoni at Northwestern ARCANA Lab. My primary research interest lies in advancing the field of parallel processing via compiler support and multi-threaded scheduling techniques. My research aims to enable programmers to write generic parallel programs while producing portable and performant binaries for various parallel architectures and heterogeneous systems. I am also interested in parallelizing compilers, code analysis, and compiler optimizations.
