I am Computer Science Master's Student at Boston University, with an interest in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Research Vision

My research goals lie in making Compute as fast as possible, by whatever means neccesary.

I believe true performance is only achievable by a Co-Design of Hardware and Software.

Currently, I'm working as a Research Assistant at Boston University WISE Circuits Lab under guidance of Prof. Dr. Rabia T. Yazicigil.

My research interests are Hardware design for Experimental Algorithms, Compute Acceleration using FPGA and High Performance Computing.
