Parallel Systems

Designing and optimizing both hardware and software to more efficiently operate on a large scale is the focus of our research into parallel systems. Our work on synchronizing mobile and location-based computing to more efficiently use cloud computing and data pushes the limits of systems. We also focus on high-performance computing, big data and how to best utilize multiple processors to accelerate computations while minimizing bugs and maximizing reliability.
