Chun-Yi just got back from his internship at Pacific Northwest National Lab (PNNL) where he worked with Andres Marquez to develop a tool called MODA.
During the internship, he helped to develop a parallel radix sorting, a parallel arithmetic binary encoder and decoder to reduce the size of collected memory data on Cray’s XMT machine. He also helped to design MODA’s code instrumentation and memory monitoring system and completed a GUI tool to represent memory behavior of XMT. He is collaborating with Andres, Dr. Cameron, Dr. Gao and two students from University of Delaware, Sunil and Joseph to write a paper about MODA and plan to submit it to PPoPP.
Chun-Yi now plans to research DCT on the NUMA architecture in the summer 2011. This project is in collaboration with Dr. Nikolopoulos from University of Crete, Bronis from LLNL and Dong Li from ORNL. The goal is to design a runtime system to optimize thread layout and mapping on high performance computing applications to get better performance.
