My research focuses on high-level programming language and runtime support for non-general purpose computation. Special-purpose devices, like sensor networks, GPUs, and FPGAs, can solve certain classes of problems more efficiently than general purpose devices. The drawback is that most existing programming models are designed for general purpose computing and often either under-perform or fail to perform when applied to specialized devices; optimal utilization of specialized devices requires specialized programming models.
