ICSA PhD student Dominik Grewe has been awarded an NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship. He's one of only 11 students worldwide to have received this, and the only one from a European university.
The NVIDIA Graduate Fellowship Program supports researchers worldwide working on GPU-based, heterogeneous computer systems.
Dominik’s research is in the area of optimizing programs for heterogeneous multi-core architectures. Specifically he’s investigating ways to automatically partition parallel programs across processors in a heterogeneous system.
“In the Compiler and Architecture Design Group at the University of Edinburgh we are building up an excellence center for research on heterogeneous computing. The funding by NVIDIA will help me to further expand our infrastructure, allowing for more extensive experimental work in this area. Additionally the fellowship will allow me to visit other institutions and foster collaborations with research and industry.”
