My research interests are in computer architecture and high performance computing, especially in finding ways to accelerate applications not optimally served directly by commercial off-the-shelf solutions. This has led me to fascinating domains such as computer vision, weather and climate modeling, bioinformatics, computational biology, and computational electrodynamics.  Early on I concentrated on ASIC-based solutions (e.g., with the IUA project); later, on switching fabrics for connecting off-the-shelf components or IP; and most recently on using the incredible, but largely untapped, computation capabilities of Graphics Processors (GPUs) and configurable circuits (FPGAs).  Always critical to my research has been programmability -- at various times this has led to work in portable programming languages.  Lately I've been interested in low-latency interconnects, especially among the accelerators themselves; in thermal and power aware application development; and in HPC in the Cloud.
