Research Outline

My research focus is on employing novel architectures, such as GPUs, and FPGAs, for computationally intensive tasks.  I have applied this to domains including computational chemistry and ultrasound simulation.

Research Description

Modern computer systems have become enormously powerful in terms of their floating point and memory bandwidth performance. However, harnessing this enormous computational power in systems such as graphics processing units (GPUs) is difficult.  My research aim is to enable programmers to more easily harness this computational power particularly for scientific applications such as ultrasound simulation. I currently teach Computer Graphics and Operating System.
