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.
My research group is currently supported by NSF grants
CCF-0811524, CNS-0719966, CCF-0429859, Google, and Intel.
"I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I have
lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I
have been entrusted to take the game
winning shot... and missed. And I have
failed over and over and over again in my
life. And that is why I succeed." --
