Yang “Robert” Liu and Meenakshi Sundaram Bhaskaran successfully defended their dissertations on the 9th and 8th of December, respectively. Robert’s work on “Systems and Algorithm Support for Efficient Heterogeneous Computing with GPUs” broke new ground in integrating GPUs and conventional processors. Sundaram, in the meantime, developed new ways of integrating non-volatile memories into systems at multiple levels with “Micro-Architecture and Systems Support for Emerging Non-Volatile Memories.”
Robert is headed to Western Digital. Sundaram is setting off on a great (and secret) adventure.
We will miss you both, and wish you all the best!
