Overview (2018-12) PDF

I care about systems software – roughly speaking, for computers which consume 10 Milliwatt – 500 Watt of power. They include IoT sensors, smartphones, and edge servers.

At Purdue, I work with a group of graduate students who share interest in systems software.

Our current work bases on two premises:

1. OSes are defined by important apps

2. Commodity kernels (e.g. Linux) are essentially firmware

I worked on smartphone OS for my PhD, e.g. the K2 project which won an award in ASPLOS’14. Today, I continue to work on various mobile/wearable topics. See our group page for all projects.
