I believe computing is at an inflection point: logic technology scaling is beginning to slow down while 3D-stackable non-volatile memories keep marching towards increased bit density and lower cost. From systems perspective, continuation of this new trend represents huge challenges in operating system and platform architecture: systems must evolve to adapt to the new balance between compute and storage, but they must do so in the least painful way for the mature computing ecosystem.

I have conducted systems research personally modifying the deepest parts of Linux kernel and Xen hypervisor. I also dabbled into processor architecture and hardware design while I was at Intel. These industry research experiences provide me unique perspective on future systems architectures that may have higher chance of real-world impact.
