Onur Mutlu

I am a Professor of Computer Science at ETH Zurich. I am also associated with the Information Technology and Electrical Engineering department.

I am also an Adjunct Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, where I held the Dr. William D. and Nancy W. Strecker Early Career Professorship.

My research is in computer architecture, systems, security, and bioinformatics. My work spans and stretches the boundaries between applications, systems, languages, system software, compilers, and hardware. My research tackles many issues in high performance, energy efficiency, hardware security, fault tolerance, predictable systems, dependable systems, and hardware/software cooperation. I am especially excited about novel, fundamentally-secure and fundamentally-efficient computation, communication and memory/storage paradigms, applied to emerging systems, technologies, and bioinformatics/medical applications. I am also excited about system design for bioinformatics and biologically inspired computing paradigms.

My Research Group at ETH: SAFARI@ETHZ (website coming soon). We are affiliated with the Systems Group.
