Thin film materials and heterostructures play a key role in modern technology including electronics and photonics. Atomically precise engineering of thin film materials enables unprecedented control of their structure and properties, bringing exciting opportunities to materials science. Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), which form three-atom-thick monolayers with van der Waals surfaces, provide an ideal material platform […]

Diabetes and peripheral arterial disease affect hundreds of millions of people worldwide. Patients with these conditions frequently develop chronic wounds on the lower limbs that lead to amputation, with a 5-year mortality rate as high as 77%. Macrophages, the primary cell of the innate immune system, are critical regulators of angiogenesis and wound healing. Their […]

Abstract: We require computers that extract value from exponential data growth even as exponential transistor scaling falters. With limited scaling, power and thermal density threaten performance. Architects must pursue power efficiency in design and management. My research group addresses these challenges by integrating systems architecture with statistical inference. First, we design systems by tailoring hardware […]
