The Tufts Computer Architecture Lab is headed by Prof. Mark Hempstead within the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. The research group investigates methods to increase energy efficiency across the boundaries of circuits, architecture, and systems. Our recent accomplishments include the Sigil profiling tool, scalable modeling infrastructure for accelerator implementations, microarchitecture-aware VDD gating algorithms, an accelerator architecture for ultrasound imaging, evaluation of hardware reference counting, hardware and operating system support for power-agile computing, and memory systems for accelerator-based architectures. See the project pages and recent publications for more information.
Our lab was previously known as the Drexel Power-Aware Computing Lab and we moved to Tufts University in the fall of 2015. We still have members located at Drexel University co-advised by Prof. Baris Taskin in the VLSI Lab.
Open Positions: We are looking for both Graduate Students and Post-Doc researchers interested in computer architecture and computer systems research. Please contact Prof. Hempstead for details.
