I am currently pursuing a PhD. in Electrical & Computer Engineering at University of Connecticut and working as a Graduate Research Assistant under the supervision of Prof. Omer Khan. I did my undergraduate studies in Electrical Engineering from University of Engineering & Technology, Lahore, Pakistan.
My current research focuses on leveraging hardware isolation on multi-core processors to build a secure and resilient execution environment at low performance costs. I am interested in broad aspects of computer architecture, architectural support mechanisms for performance, and scalability of multi-core processor architectures. My research also focuses on approximate computing, hardware security, and graph analytics and machine learning perception algorithms.
