Note: Here is my latest web page!
I was a Postdoctoral Associate in the Supercomputing Technologies Group
of the MIT Laboratory for Computer Science.
I am involved in the development of a C-based multithreaded language and runtime
system called Cilk, which is
being developed as part of the MIT Multiscale Computing Project.
... and the latest paper about Porch: Compiler
Technology for Portable Checkpoints (submitted for publication)
Cilk are not just disjoint
projects. This Technical Memo on
Closure Creation shows where both projects overlap.
