“The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.” - Randy Pausch
I, Sriram Murali am a electrical & computer engineering graduate student of University of British Columbia, Vancouver. Currently I am a Research Assistant on Computer Systems Lab, ECE Dept, UBC. During graduation, I look forward to do productive research in Computer Systems Engineering.
Currently, I am working as an Intern with IBM, Toronto Labs, in XL C/C++/Fortran UPC Compiler Performance Measurement and Analysis team. Upon completion of my program with IBM, I am expected to return to UBC to continue pursuing my research for my Masters degree.
I have a BE degree in electronics from Anna University, Chennai. Apart from that I worked as a research associate/ trainee in High Performance Computing Group at Waran Research Foundation, Chennai. I grew up and lived until Aug 2008 in Chennai, where I did my under-graduation in Anna University & grade 12 schooling at DAV Gopalapuram. Apart from doing productive research, I do freelance technical writing, and programming for fun. I do a bit of music and sports too, to refrain myself calling me a nerd...
My research interests are
- Real-time Scheduling of Applications on Multi-core machines
- Virtualization of Cache and Node architecture
- Critical variables and Instruction Derating
- High Performance Interconnect Networks
- Fault-tolerant Computing
- Distributed Computer Systems
- Performance Evaluation and Optimization
Unix Commands.. for easy reference..
My Mission Statement is
To pursue interdisciplinary research in the field of High Performance Computer Architecture and its Software Engineering requirements, the application to Grand Challenge Problems such as Protein Folding, Brain Modeling.
