Hello! I am Tyler Allen, Assistant Professor of Computer Science in the UNC Charlotte College of Computing and Informatics. My research focuses on enabling new capabilities for High Performance Computing (HPC) systems using architecture-focused applications, as well as making HPC systems more accessible through development and optimization of systems technology. Modern HPC systems are largely driven by graphics processing units (GPUs), and as such we focus on architecture-driven optimizations for GPU applications as well as effective methods for GPUs and their host systems to interact effectively. My goal is to transform performance optimization beyond simple metrics analysis into tangible, qualitative benefits for large-scale system users and applied applications developers.
I have several openings for Ph.D. students. If you are interested in these kinds of topics and wish to pursue a Ph.D., you can apply here and feel free to include my name in your application. I also highly encourage you to send me an email or visit my office on campus.
