I’m currently enrolled as a graduate student in Electrical and Computer engineering at Purdue University, West Lafayette, USA. My interests include parallel programming (HPC), programming heterogeneous systems, programming methodologies and abstractions, machine learning, natural language processing, information theory and cryptography. I completed my B.Sc and Hons. B.Sc in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, and my B.Eng in Electrical and Computer engineering at the North-West University, Potchefstroom campus, South Africa.

Previous projects include:

  • A runtime framework for heterogeneous platforms that consists of a programming abstraction, runtime model driven scheduler and data coherence layer.
  • Source-to-source compiler to generate optimized heterogeneity aware pipeline.
  • JavaScript compiler pass to identify memory leaks.
