UT ECE alumnus Onur Mutlu has been appointed the Dr. William D. and Nancy W.Strecker Early Career Professor in the Department of Electrical and ComputerEngineering at Carnegie Mellon University.
Prof. Mutlu's research group is researching how to make computing platforms and chips — from those used in mobile systems to those used in large-scale data centers — much more energy-efficient, predictable, robust and capable. His focus is developing microprocessors, computer memories and platforms that can efficiently, quickly and reliably store, manipulate and communicate massive amounts of data.
Prof. Mutlu earned a master's degree in 2002 and a Ph.D. in 2006 in computerengineering from the University of Texas at Austin while studying under Prof.Yale Patt. Before coming to Carnegie Mellon, Mutlu worked at Microsoft Researchand spent summers at Intel and Advanced Micro Devices.
