Research Interests

Professor Goldstein's research is in creating processors and compilers to meet tomorrow's computing needs. He is focusing on reconfigurable computing as a way to meet the new demands of applications such as multimedia, encryption, digital signal processing, autonomous vehicles and databases. He is currently working on reconfigurable architectures and compilers in conjunction with the PipeRench project. His goal is to bring reconfigurable computing into the mainstream of computing by developing better compilation technology and integrating a reconfigurable fabric with a processor core for both high-powered, general-purpose processors and embedded systems.

In the short-term, Professor Goldstein is working on compiling applications to a pipeline model using the cached virtual hardware realization of a reconfigurable fabric.
