Welcome!

I am an associate professor at the Computer Science department of Northwestern University where I run the ARCANA logo research lab.
At Northwestern University I am a member of the Systems and Networking group, the Programming Languages group, and the Computer Science and Computer Engineering Departments.
My group is passionate about understanding how abstractions used within and around compilers should evolve to better support hardware and applications trends. This goal often leads us to co-design compilers with the computer architecture and operating system they target as well as with the programming language they translate.

Research: I'm very happy our latest paper done as Parakinetics group has been accepted to ASPLOS 2023. Congratulations Susan!

Conference: I'm very happy to have been invited to serve on the CGO program committee for 2024! CGO is a great conference for compiler enthusiast like myself. Consider submitting your work to the premier CGO symposium !

Teaching: Julio Wang won the competition for the best compiler of the year for the CC class. Julio is now in the Hall of Fame of the class. Congratulations!

Teaching: Slides of the CC class are now up-to-date to the ones used this year. I hope they will help others.

Conference: I'm very happy to have been invited to serve on the ASPLOS program committee for 2024! ASPLOS is a great conference for research that cross hardware/software boundaries. Consider submitting your work!

Conference: I'm very happy to have been invited to serve on the MICRO program committee for 2023! MICRO is a great conference for computer architecture research. Consider submitting your work!

Research: I'm very happy that a new paper done as Parakinetics group has been accepted to ISCA 2023. It is a great pleasure working with such talented people. Congratulations everyone especially Nayana and Bhargav!

Conference: I'm very happy to have been invited to serve on the MICRO steering committee! MICRO is a great conference for computer architecture research and I'm honored to be part of the steering committee with hopes to help the community. Here are the responsabilities for the steering committee of MICRO.

Teaching: Materials of the ATC class are now up-to-date to the ones used this year. I hope they will help others.

Career: I'm very happy to share I've been promoted to associate professor with tenure. I would like to thank all my students and collaborators for sharing this journey with me. Also, I would like to thank everyone involved in the process of evaluating my case (e.g., committee members, recommendation letter writers). I know this was a lot of work, so thank you!

Research: Congratulations to Brian Tauro for having his paper accepted at ASPLOS 2024!

Research: Congratulations to Zhenpeng Lin for having his paper accepted at USENIX Security 2024! This is the first collaboration I had with Prof. Xinyu Xing (which recently joined Northwestern) and his group, and I'm very impressed! Great work!

Research: Congratulations to Tommy McMichen for having his paper accepted at CGO 2024! This work is about the first compiler's IR with collections (in SSA) as first-class citizen. This IR, called MemOIR, will make memory-centric analyses and transformations much, much, much easier (and, for many cases, finally possible!)

Proud advisor I'm very proud Enrico A. Deiana successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis last week. Enrico did a fantastic job both at presenting his research and at answering all questions, I'm very proud of him! I know he will do great in his next chapter of his life, good luck Enrico! Thank you Peter Dinda, Nikos Hardavellas, Robby Findler, Margo Seltzer, and Arthur Maccabe (Barney) for being part of Enrico's committee, we have greatly appreciated your work!

Teaching: Slides of the CAT class are now up-to-date to the ones used this year. I hope they will help others.

Teaching: Justin Dong won the competition for the best code analysis and transformation of the year for the CAT class. Justin is now in the Hall of Fame of the class. Congratulations!

Proud advisor I'm very proud to announce Enrico A. Deiana will join Google after his Ph.D.! congratulations Enrico (and Google for having recognized how good Enrico is!)

Research: Congratulations to Ziyang Xu for having his paper accepted at OOPSLA 2024! This work is about a profiling infrastructure for memory operations and their dependences to easily generate very efficient and scalable memory profilers. We can now profile memory operations and their dependences with little overhead, finally!

Research: Congratulations to Yian Su for having his paper accepted at ASPLOS 2024! This work is about a compiler that is capable to automatically generate parallel code that implements the heartbeat scheduling from fork-join parallelism declared in the source code (e.g., with OpenMP). No more hand-writing heartbeat scheduling solutions anymore!

Conference: I'm very happy to have been invited to serve on the ASPLOS program committee for 2025! ASPLOS is a great conference for research that cross hardware/software boundaries. Consider submitting your work!

Research: Congratulations to Celine for having her paper accepted at ICLR 2024! This work is a beautiful integration of large language models and compilers to exploit their relative strengths and overcome their relative weaknesses. I'm very happy about this paper because this is my first collaboration with Celine Lee, Abdulrahman Mahmoud, Michal Kurek, Stephen Chong, and Alexander M. Rush. Also, this is the first work I was involved with my mentors David Brooks and Gu-Yeon Wei since the end of my Post-doc (2015) and I've missed working with them during my pre-tenure journey.

Software: We have released GINO, the first parallelizing compiler that includes DOALL, HELIX, and DSWP parallelization techniques! GINO builds upon NOELLE, which is also open sourced.
