Professional Experience

Director of Engineering, Google Research February 2020 - Present
Google LLC., Mountain View, CA.
Leading research in scalable distributed systems.

Sr. Director, Compilers and Tools September 2016 - February 2020
Barefoot Networks, an Intel Company, Palo Alto, CA.
Lead the development and productization of language, compilers and tools for programmable network devices.
  • Led the development and productization of the first domain specific networking stack using the P4 language on the Tofino family of programmable packet processing ASICs. Managed the compilers and tools teams.
  • Lead the development of the P4 Language: worked with the p4.org community to evolve the P4 language to support customer-specific requirements; acted as co-chair of the P4 Architecture Working Group, responsible for defining the Portable Switch Architecture.
  • Defined the strategy around P4 tools and designed, developed and productized the P4 Insight visualization tool.
  • Worked with internal Barefoot Networks teams to define the architecture of several generations of Tofino.

Sr. Director of Engineering (2013-2016), Director (2009-2013) October 2009 - September 2016
Qualcomm Research Silicon Valley, Santa Clara, CA.
Led Qualcomm's Power Aware Computing strategy.

Manager, Programming Models and Tools for Scalable Systems Group September 2004 - October 2009
IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY.
Job responsibilities include leading research projects with globally distributed teams. Developed and contributed to the IBM Research strategy in compilers and systems software.
Led the PERCS (DARPA HPCS) Compilers team. As part of this effort we explored and developed a number of technologies to improve programmer productivity:
  • Continuous Program Optmization (CPO): combine static and dynamic compilation and allow statically compiled languages to be executed using a managed runtime, in order to continuously monitor and adapt to changes in the execution environment. We developed the CPO vision and implemented several optimization prototypes that take as input system wide monitoring and optimize an application across runs. Papers published in PACT 2005, IBM System Journal, and PAC2 2004.
  • The xlUPC compiler: lead the design and development of a UPC compiler for IBM platforms, including IBM pSeries and Blue Gene. The xlUPC compiler is the first compiler and runtime system that scales PGAS programs to hundreds of thousands of threads. The compiler was used also in the HPC Challenge Productivity Competition, and won the award every year we participated (2005, 2006, 2008, 2009)
  • Initiated and supervised the development of math libraries for high performance linear algebra.
  • Drove the design and development of tracing libraries for the monitoring of the full execution stack. Contributions to the design on the performance counter design in the IBM pSeries processors, OS tracing infrastructure and application monitoring

Led exploratory projects in parallel programming models and parallel languages to improve programmer productivity:
  • Asynchronous execution to improve parallel execution: load balancing through work stealing, performance portability, acceleration support
  • Transactional Memory and Thread Level Speculation -- using speculative execution to improve programmability and efficiency

Mentoring IBM employees, PhD students and student interns.
Extensive collaborations with academia.

Research Staff Member July 2000 - September 2004
IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY.
Participated in the design and development of system software and performance analysis tools for massively parallel systems: Blue Gene and PERCS.
  • PERCS (DARPA HPCS). Participated in the initial phases of the project, initially as a member of the compiler team, and starting in 2004, leading it. Established the research agenda and demonstrated the initial feasability for the Continuous Program Optimization, UPC compiler, Linear Algebra Compiler, etc.
  • Blue Gene. Designed and developed a highly multithreaded simulator for the Blue Gene/C chip. Participated in the design and developed an initial prototype for the job launching system on Blue Gene/L. Designed and developed an initial prototype of the xl UPC compiler for the Blue Gene/L architecture. Designed and evaluated Thread Level Speculation support for Blue Gene/Q. Application evaluation across multiple Blue Gene families.
  • Performance monitoring tools. Designed and developed internal tools for performance analysis using the hardware performance monitoring counters and provided feedback to the Power architecture performance team. Developed a methodology for performance monitoring and adaptation based on histories (see PACT 2003 paper).

Graduate Research Assistant August 1996 - June 2000
Computer Science Department, Univ. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL.
Conducted research in the Polaris and Delphi projects, working on compile-time performance prediction, data locality, and parallel programming models.
  • Extended the Polaris parallelizing compiler with code generation passes for TreadMarks and Fast Messages. Maintained the Polaris development environment.
  • Developed MATmarks, an environment for parallel programming with MATLAB based on TreadMarks. Obtained linear speedups for several applications on a network of workstations.
  • Worked on data locality and false sharing characterization of applications running on multiprocessor programs. Metrics derived from this study are to be used for both driving compiler optimizations for locality and program performance prediction for new architectures.
