Profile Summary

Josh's research spans broadly across topics in computer architecture and systems. His specific interests lie in new paradigms such as approximate computing and intermittent computing for energy-harvesting IoT devices as well as traditional architectures, ranging from microarchitectural topics (e.g., branch prediction, value prediction) to cache hierarchies and networks-on-chip for many-core processors.

Prior to joining the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Josh received his PhD in 2017 at the University of Toronto, under the supervision of Professor Natalie Enright Jerger. During this time, he fostered numerous academic and industry collaborations, including his work on the Anytime Automaton Model with the exploratory systems architecture group at IBM T. J. Watson in 2015. His research has garnered several paper awards, particularly two IEEE Micro Top Picks citations in 2016 and 2017 (honorable mention) for his contributions to branch prediction and approximate computing. His PhD dissertation was nominated by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering for the ACM Doctoral Dissertation Award and the Governor General's Gold Medal in 2018.
