Faculty Seminar Series–On the Rules of Robust Design (and Why You Should Break Them)

Todd AustinProfessor

I will be presenting an overview of the work that bootstrapped
my academic career, plus observations on how this work informed
my approach to research.
Todd Austin is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer
Science at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. His research
interests include computer architecture, reliable and secure system
design, hardware and software verification, and performance analysis
tools and techniques. Prior to joining academia, Todd was a Senior
Computer Architect in Intel's Microcomputer Research Labs, a
product-oriented research laboratory in Hillsboro, Oregon. Todd is
the first to take credit (but the last to accept blame) for creating
the SimpleScalar Tool Set, a popular collection of computer
architecture performance analysis tools. In 2002, Todd was a Sloan
Research Fellow, and in 2007 he received the ACM Maurice Wilkes
Award for "innovative contributions in Computer Architecture
including the SimpleScalar Toolkit and the DIVA and Razor
architectures" . Todd received his PhD in Computer Science from
the University of Wisconsin in 1996.
