BioB.Tech. in Electrical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology, 1986M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Rice University, 1989Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Rice University, 1993
Research interests include:
Parallel and distributed computing, computer architecture, and the interaction and interface between the compiler, runtime/operating system, and underlying architecture.
Her research lies at the intersection of computer hardware and software with a particular focus on support for parallelism. She has made fundamental contributions to the design and implementation of shared memory both in hardware and software, and to hardware and software energy- and resource-aware configurability.
