I'm currently finishing up my third year in the PhD. program at Washington University in St. Louis and will be attending my first PLDI. I will be presenting work done by my co-authors and I at the co-located workshop MSPC. Our paper, "Trash in Cache: Detecting Eternally Silent Stores" discusses a technique to track liveness of objects while they are in cache, allowing us to clear dirty bits and avoid write-backs of any dead data in cache. I will also be presenting a poster based on this work Monday night during the SRC. I look forward to answering any questions and receiving feedback from everyone.
I am very excited to attend PLDI thanks in part to NSF funding through ACM SigPlan. I look forward to hearing as many talks as possible. I also look forward to discussing research and life with as many of you as possible. See you all there and safe travels.
