My name is Kai Wu (吴凯). I am a Computer Science PhD student in EECS at University of California, Merced, where I am a member of Parallel Architecture, System, and Algorithm Lab (PASA)and advised by Dr. Dong Li. Before coming to UC Merced, I earned my master degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Michigan State University.
My research broadly falls into general areas of High Performance Computing (Large-Scale Parallel Systems). Specially, I focus on the following areas:
- Parallel programming models and runtime;
- Performance optimization and modeling;
- Resilience and Consistency;
- Non-volatile memory;
- Fault Tolerance in Extreme-Scale Parallel Systems.
