Former last name: Pechtchanski
|Position||I am currently a Research Software Engineer at the IBM T.J.Watson Research Center. I have defended my Ph.D. dissertation, "A Framework for Optimistic Program Optimization", in June, 2003.|
|Advisors||I was jointly advised by Benjamin Goldberg at NYU and Vivek Sarkar (then at IBM).|
I am primarily interested in Programming Language Design and
My thesis research involves using source-level annotations to
aid compiler optimizations and code quality.
In the past, I've designed new language primitives, implemented instruction schedulers, assisted in designing architecture simulators, and ported highly parallel programs.
I am currently working on two projects at
IBM Research --
XJ, a language that
integrates XML into Java, and
high-productivity, high-performance programming language and
run-time environment for scalable parallel applications.
For most of 2005, I also worked on Divvy, a language for breaking up large systems into components. Up until early 2005, I was part of the Symbiotic Software Development group at IBM Research, trying to make it easier for people to design and build complex enterprise applications.
For four years before that I've been an intern in the Jalapeņo group at IBM Research, working on the Jikes Research Virtual Machine (an open-source testbed for virtual machine and compiler technology research).
Before joining the Jalapeņo group, I was involved with the ReaCT-ILP Group (now CREST at Georgia Tech), designed and implemented parts of the Trimaran ILP Research Infrastructure, wrote the on-line forum software and acted as a webmaster for the Trimaran Consortium, and contributed to the Exact Geometric Computation and Cartesian Grid Methods for Complex Geometry projects.
I'm also an active participant on the Cygwin mailing lists, and have contributed code to the Cygwin project.
