I'm a Professor in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Texas A&M University. My research is in microarchitecture and the interaction between the compiler and the microarchitecture. I've done a lot of work in branch prediction and cache management. I'm known for inventing the perceptron branch predictor as well as for other research. I was elevated to IEEE Fellow in 2021 for my work in branch prediction. I recently won the B. Ramakrishna Rau award "for contributions to neural branch prediction in microprocessors."

Before I came to Texas A&M I was Professor and Department Chair in the CS department at UT San Antonio. Before that, I was an Associate Professor (with tenure) in the CS department at Rutgers. My Ph.D. in Computer Sciences is from UT Austin. I grew up in San Antonio, Texas. I'm a dual citizen of the USA and Mexico.

For a detailed list of professional things I've done, see my CV. Also see my Google Scholar page.


I won't be taking on any new students in Fall 2024 or Spring 2025 as I will be on sabbatical leave. So please don't send me email asking to join my lab.

For Graduate Students Interested in my Classes

Yes, there will be programming. I teach Computer Science. There is a lot of programming in Computer Science. If you don't like programming you shouldn't be taking my class.


I have collected a few interesting quotes here.
