Michel A. Kinsy
Director of the Adaptive & Secure Computing Systems (ASCS) Laboratory
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2013. In his doctoral work he was one of the first to develop algorithms and hardware techniques to emulate and control large-scale power systems at the microsecond resolution. This work has been continued by the MIT spin-off, Typhoon HIL, Inc. He holds an M.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT, a B.S.E. in Computer Systems Engineering and a B.S. in Computer Science from Arizona State University. From 2014 to 2016, he directed the Computer Architecture and Embedded Systems (CAES) Laboratory at the University of Oregon (UO). Prior to joining UO, he was a Technical Staff at the MIT Lincoln Laboratory. He is an MIT Presidential Fellow.
His research interests lie in the general area of computer architecture, with particular emphasis on: (1) self-aware reconfigurable architectures, (2) secure architecture design, (3) fault-tolerant network-on-chip routing algorithms, and (4) embedded and cyber-physical systems.

Undergraduate Degree:B.A. in Physics/Computer Science, Colgate University
Shreeya's research targets self-aware reconfigurable computing systems. She investigates Artificial Intelligence and Neural Networks algorithms and techniques that best lend themselves to hardware implementation for the design of architectures that can autonomously reason about the “best” way to execute a program goal given available system resources, power budget and latency requirements.
Undergraduate Degree:B.S. in Electrical Engineering / Software Engineering, Faculty of Technical Sciences, Novi Sad, Serbia
Mihailo's research focuses on investigating neuromorphic computing systems. In particular, he explores architectural support for machine learning algorithms prone to parallelization and efficient hardware implementation. Currently, he is investigating novel neural architectures and accelerating deep neural networks by constraining them to fast, low-power and highly parallelizable operations.
