Parul Sohal

I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at Boston University. I joined CS@BU in Fall’17 and I am working with Prof. Orran Krieger and Prof. Renato Mancuso. My interests lie in system level performance optimization of applications running on server-like systems via controlling interference from contention over shared hardware resources at the memory hierarchy.

My hobbies include playing with my aunts Lab, reading and hibernating in winter.
