Ron Dreslinski named Miller Faculty Scholar
Prof. Ron Dreslinski has been named a Miller Faculty Scholar, effective September 1, a title awarded to a small group of the most accomplished assistant and associate professors in the College of Engineering to support their teaching and research activities.
Dreslinski’s research is centered on energy efficient processor architectures with a recent focus on eliminating bottlenecks in data movement, as well as new software/architecture co-design, CAD/EDA tools to democratize chip design, emerging technologies, and novel application areas.
In recent work, Dreslinski is exploring how to solve the problem of designing hardware and the use of novel and emerging technologies to replace traditional CMOS transistors in the wake of the end of Moore’s law, how to enable faster and easier design of complex system-on-chip (SoC) designs, and how to create hardware to support lattice-based computations for fully homomorphic encryption. This work is supported by grants from DARPA, NASA, the Air Force, and ARM.
Determined to create impactful research that translates to industry practice, Dreslinski contributes to the open-source releases of projects like the GEM5 simulator and the Cadre Flow in addition to tools developed in partnership with DARPA.
In addition to being named Miller Faculty Scholar for his contributions to research within CSE and in industry, Dreslinski has recently been inducted into the IEEE/ACM MICRO Hall of Fame, an honor given to outstanding researchers with eight or more papers presented at the International Symposium on Microarchitecture.
In 2021, he was recognized with an EECS Outstanding Achievement Award. From 2018-2020, he was a Morris Wellman Faculty Development Professor. Prior to that, Dreslinski earned the IEEE TCCA Young Computer Architect Award and was recognized by the College of Engineering with the Kenneth M. Reese Outstanding Research Scientist Award in 2015.
