Michael Bender and I presented a tutorial on Data Structures and Algorithms for Big Databases at XLDB 2012.
My Cilk entry won the HPC Challenge Class 2 (Most productivity) award for "Best Combination of Elegance and Performance".
I am a Research Scientist at in the Supercomputing Technologies Group at the MIT Laboratory for Computer Science.Before that I was Akamai Technologies, and before that I was an assistant professor in the Yale University Department of Computer Science with a joint appointment in the Yale University Department of Electrical Engineering.
I am involved in a couple of startups: Tokutek and Cilk Arts.
My research applies algorithm design to solve systems problems in high-performance computing. I was one of the principal architects of the Connection Machine CM-5, and am the co-author of two world-class computer chess programs (StarTech and *Socrates.) I participated at MIT in the Cilk development project, which provides an algorithmic multithreaded programming system.
As an assistant professor at Yale I worked on the Ultrascalar Project, in which we improved the theoretical bounds for how fast a superscalar processor's clock can run, as a function of the window size or the issue width. We also had an 8-issue out-of-order processor fabricated in a 0.18 micron copper/low-K VLSI process. Recently we have been working on developing the mechanisms for a speculative dataflow processor.
One tool I often use in my projects is to measure the use of critical-path length to understand the inherent parallelism of a program. The Cilk paper explains in detail what critial-path length is and how to use it
In my microprocessor research, we actually measure the critical-path length of ordinary serial programs.
My wide-area multithreading research investigates how to run Cilk programs efficiently on the internet. I want to build a chess program that runs on 100,000 processors on the web. Needless to say, there are interesting problems. Mike Bernstein, working under my supervision, has built a version of Cilk that can run efficiently with limited bandwidth, such as is found on the internet.
I supported Lexington's 2006 override initiative.
For the purposes of a morality play, I have finally put a picture of myself on the web. I visited Connection Machine Services (all that is left of the Thinking Machines computer business) one day in May 2000.
And scored a CM-5 LED board:
How the mighty have fallen:
Tokutek, Tokutek, Tokutek, Tokutek, Tokutek.
