Since January 1, 2015 I have joined the Department of Pervasive Computing at TUT as a part-time visiting professor. My appointment at TUT is part of the Finland Distinguished Professor Programme (FiDiPro), and involves a joint project with Prof. Jarmo Takala entitled “Advanced Dynamic Stream Processing for Networking and Big Data (StreamPro)”. The main objective of this project is to develop new algorithmic foundations and associated computational models based on the paradigms of dataflow and spatial programming. The project develops corresponding software tools for systematic design and implementation of power-efficient parallel heterogeneous systems for embedded signal processing applications and large scale, dynamic stream processing systems. The project will provide new computing structures and approaches to be used in low-power embedded systems, cloud computing, and high-performance scientific computations.
Since 1997, I have been on the faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park, where I am currently a full professor. I hold a joint appointment in the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS), and am a member of the University of Maryland Energy Research Center (UMERC). I have previously held industrial positions as a Researcher at the Hitachi America Semiconductor Research Laboratory (San Jose, California), and Compiler Developer at Kuck & Associates (Champaign, Illinois). I have also held a visiting research position at the US Air Force Research Laboratory (Rome, New York). I received my B.S. degree from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, and my Ph.D. degree from the University of California at Berkeley.
I am very glad to be working at TUT, and am looking forward to meeting and working with the members of the Pervasive Computing Department over the coming years.
