PhD Student

Research Interests

Aaron works on smartphone energy management, and is primarily interested in how multi-core applications processors can be used to reduce energy consumption when combined with well-established techniques such as frequency/voltage scaling. He also works on understanding how energy is consumed within smartphones, using physical instrumentation and measurement on real-world devices. Recently, Aaron has been exploring techniques which exploit multi-core CPUs to improve sequential performance.
