Brief bio

I am the Lee Teng-hui Professor and the Senior Associate Dean for Diversity & Academic Affairs in the College of Engineering. I have been very fortunate to work with some extraordinary people, and as a result my research has received a number of awards over the years; among them: two IEEE Micro Top Picks papers; a HPCA Best Paper award, as well as MICRO and HPCA Best Paper nominations; a NSF CAREER Award; two IBM Faculty Awards; and a Distinguished Educator Award by the University of Illinois’ Computer Science Department (my graduate alma mater).

On the teaching side, I have been recognized with two Kenneth A. Goldman ’71 and one Dorothy and Fred Chau MS’74 College of Engineering teaching awards; a Ruth and Joel Spira Award for Teaching Excellence; thrice as the most influential college educator of a Merrill Presidential Scholar (Andrew Tibbits ’07, Gulnar Mirza ’16, and Angela Jin ’21); and as the student-elected 2011 Tau Beta Pi Professor of the Year in the College of Engineering.

I am an IEEE Fellow, an elected member of ACM SIGARCH‘s Board of Directors, and a member of the steering committees of ISCA and MICRO. In 2017 I was Chair of the IEEE Computer Society’s Transactions Operating Committee, in charge of overseeing all of the Society’s journal publications; before that, I served as Editor in Chief of IEEE Computer Architecture Letters (2013-2016). I was Program Co-chair (with David August) of MICRO 2009, and Program Chair of HPCA 2016. I was General Co-chair (with José Duato) of ISCA 2020 and 2021.

I graduated in Computer Science & Engineering (“Licenciado en Informática de Sistemas”) in 1996 from the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, and earned MS (1999) and Ph.D. (2002) degrees in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I received two national awards for academic excellence from Spain’s Ministry of Education, and came to the United States on a four-year fellowship from the Bank of Spain, for which I am forever grateful.

Research

My primary research interest is computer architecture: Microprocessors and computer systems; microarchitectures; multiprocessor and multicore architectures; caches and memory subsystems; embedded systems; buses and interconnects.

I am co-founder and part of the executive leadership of the DARPA/SRC Center for Research in Intelligent Storage and Processing in Memory (CRISP) and the NSF Science and Technology Center for Research on Programmable Plant Systems (CROPPS). Prior to CROPPS’ launch, I co-founded and was on the executive committee of the Cornell Institute for Digital Agriculture (CIDA).
