Prashant Nair is an Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia (UBC). His primary interests are Computer Architecture, Quantum Systems, AI/ML Systems, Memory Systems, Reliability, and Security. He leads the “Systems and Architectures (STAR) Lab.” Dr. Nair has 25 publications in top-tier venues such as ISCA, MICRO, HPCA, ASPLOS, DSN, and VLDB. He has received several awards, including the best paper at HPCA 2023, two IEEE MICRO Top-Picks honourable mentions, and the ECE Graduate Research Assistant Excellence Award for his Ph.D. at Georgia Tech. Before joining UBC, he investigated practical data compression for IBM systems at T. J. Watson Research Center in New York. Dr. Nair’s works have had a commercial impact. Specifically, his work on integrating On-Die Error Correcting Code and Host Error Correcting Code (published in ISCA-2016) has been successfully integrated into the HBM3 Memory Protocol by JEDEC consortium. Furthermore, top industry players employ ideas similar to his work (CAL-2014) on probabilistic Row Hammer mitigation in DRAM-based memory systems.
