Blake A. Hechtman
I am an Electrical and Computer Engineering PhD Candidate at Duke University advised by Dan Sorin. My thesis work is on communication, synchronization, and task parallelism on Massively-Threaded Throughput-Oriented Processors like GPUs. My work includes both hardware techniques to improve communication and synchronization as well as software runtimes to support task parallelism and synchronization. My task parallel framework for GPUs, cynk, will soon be availble through bitbucket.
