My research and education focuses on developing advanced hardware and software technology for next-generation processors. Current research activity focuses on microarchitectural techniques and compilation techniques to further speed up general-purpose computers.
Junior students will begin their work by focusing on web page design, electronic publishing, literature searches, small programming and testing in the UNIX environment, and other miscellaneous duties, until the student is familiar with the environment. Subsequently, the student gradually gets involved in more technical work, such as learning computer architecture related software tools. Within a few weeks, the student will have learned how to modify these tools to perform quantitative studies and to evaluate different design decisions.
Enthusiastic and motivated juniors in computer engineering, who are maintaining a GPA of 3.3 or higher, and have taken (or currently taking) at least one programming course in C or C++ and ENEE 244 or equivalent, are encouraged to apply. If interested in the position, please send your resume, a cover letter, and a copy of your current unofficial UMD transcript to:
