I am working on the design of energy-efficient non-von Neumann architectures using emerging memory technologies. I approach the problem from multiple perspectives, including, system architecture and circuit design. I focus on a special kind of memory technology, called, RRAM (Resistive Random Access Memory). My current work is based on a memory system design with this memory technology, and in future, I plan to focus on novel ways to perform computation within this memory to mitigate the memory wall problem in today’s state-of-the-art general-purpose computing machines. In the past, I worked on executing logical functions using RRAM from circuit design perspective.
