Personal Bio I received my Masters from the University of Glasgow in 2013 and during that degree I spent time studying at UCSB in California and working in South Korea and Cambridge, UK. I am currently in my fourth year at Princeton. I'm also an Resident Graduate Student in Wilson College and a member of the 2 Dickinson Street vegetarian coop. I spend my free time organizing social events, learning Korean, and missing Scotland.
Fun Fact I taught myself Korean for ~3 years before I could take my first official class here at Princeton.
Research Keywords Systems, architecture, chips
Research Pitch Computer Architecture is about making computers more efficient either through the modification of existing software and hardware or the addition of new hardware. "Efficiency" here is usually either performance (why your phone can now play HD movies) or energy efficiency (why your phone's battery doesn't die after playing the whole movie).
