Hi everyone, I'm Parker Hill from University of Michigan. I'm a 2nd year PhD student working with with Professors Jason Mars and Lingjia Tang in Clarity Lab. My research interests are where computer architecture intersects programming languages and compilers. Because of this, I am most excited about the papers in the "Down to the Metal" and "Energy & Performance" sessions.
I have only attended conferences focused on computer architecture, previously (ISCA/ASPLOS), so it will be interesting to experience the difference in how PL/compiler research is done when it is the central focus. It will also be great to meet new researchers with common interests. Only a few days until PLDI now!
