Description of Research: 

Compiler technologies can improve the performance of programs on existing hardware; however, often require expert knowledge from the user to deliver the best performance. Techniques like domain-specific languages, auto-parallelization, and auto-vectorization can lower the barrier for high performance for non-experts.

Compiler technologies can improve the performance of programs on existing hardware; however, often require expert knowledge from the user to deliver the best performance. My research focuses on lowering the barrier for non-experts to unlock better performance from their programs. I am interested in developing frameworks for building domain-specific languages, and improving compilers' ability to auto parallelize and vectorize programs.
