Sam Pollard

Welcome to my webpage! I am a second year computer science Ph.D. student at the University of Oregon advised by Boyana Norris. My primary interest is high performance computing (HPC). Currently I am in the process of choosing a topic for my dissertation and am interested in exploring the connections between program transformation, autotuning, and programming languages with the ultimate goal of simplifying HPC programming.

I am located in Deschutes 337 and am a member of the High Performance Computing Laboratory (HPCL). You can find an overview of my (sparse) schedule below and my google calender in the link to the left.
