Professor Onur Mutlu receives Google Faculty Award


February 25, 2015

Electrical and Computer Engineering professor Onur Mutlu has received the Google Faculty Research Award for Winter 2015. Google Research Awards are one-year awards structured as unrestricted gifts to universities to support the work of world-class full-time faculty members at top universities around the world. The intent of the Google Research Awards is to support cutting-edge research in Computer Science, Engineering, and related fields.

This Faculty Award is to support Professor Mutlu's research in the area of novel computer memory systems. Mutlu has been examining new memory architectures and interfaces with the goal of enabling low-cost and energy-efficient computation near data. His related research develops both new hardware substrates and software interfaces to perform computation in or close to memory as well as software techniques that can take better advantage of such new substrates and interfaces. A recent overview of Mutlu's research can be found here.
