Biography

My main research focus is on developing compiler algorithms, runtime systems, and tools that enable programmers to use a high-level programming style and modern languages, and yet still achieve high performance on uniprocessor and multiprocessor architectures. I am particularly interested in effectively using processor memory hierarchies, and in memory management.

I am very interested in future architectures and their compilers that are a better match to current and future technology limits and constraints. Explicit Dataflow Graph Execution (EDGE) is the approach we are pursuing.
